Chinese Grand Prix: Watch Nico Rosberg's first ever pole lap

Watch Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg as he takes his first ever pole position for Sunday's Chinese Grand Prix.

The German was half a second faster than McLaren's Lewis Hamilton, who will start seventh following a grid penalty.

It is Mercedes' first pole since the 1955 Italian Grand Prix with Juan Manuel Fangio.
