Despite failing to score a podium finish, Nico Rosberg regularly finished in the points, with six consecutive top six finishes mid-season. His teammate Kazuki Nakajiima however, fared less well, failing to score a point all season.
The Williams FW31 was a midfield runner, capable of scoring points on most occasions, but rarely quick enough to challenge for podiums. Nico Rosberg looked more at home in the car than did his teammate Kazuki Nakajima who failed to score a point all season.
A high/low point for Rosberg was during the Singapore Grand Prix when in third position he crossed the white line on the pit lane exit, which earned him a penalty and cost him third place and a trip to the podium.
