Nico Rosberg expressed his happiness as he cruised to a second straight Austrian Grand Prix victory at the Red Bull Ring.

Rosberg took the lead from Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton at the start and pulled away from the Briton to record a third win of 2015, closing the gap to Hamilton in the title race to 10 points.

"It’s an awesome feeling of course to win again here, [I'm] very very happy," he said.

"The start made the race. It was a great start. Then I managed to defend in the first couple of corners, and then I really just tried to push flat out this time.

"I was really happy with the car and really happy to see the gap open up to Lewis. [It] really worked out perfectly today."

Rosberg played down his radio calls towards the end regarding to vibrations in the car.

"It was just the vibration picking up on the right front, [I] was telling them to keep an eye on it, it came from the tyre wear and it feels uncomfortable with that, but it stabilised," he explained.
