Nico Rosberg was disappointed with his result at the Malaysian Grand Prix, the Williams driver lamenting the wrong tire choices.
Rosberg made a sensational start from fourth position to lead by the first corner, and then stayed on top until he was overtaken by Jenson Button in the pits.
The Williams driver, however, dropped down the order when it began to rain and in the end had to settle for eighth position after making the wrong decisions when choosing the tires.
"The race started off really well for us," Rosberg told the BBC. "A fantastic start. I think I did well, and the team also gave me a good car for the start and from then on it felt very nice.
"I was able to push, and pull away a little bit every lap so I was really in a comfortable second after the pitstops to Jenson, who was just generally quicker, so it was going really well.
"And then the weather came down and I think we didn't get the choices quite right along the way. I'm not even sure what happened. Seventh (eighth) in the end, it's quite disappointing actually but still, again some points, that's the least."
Rosberg admitted the track conditions were too bad to continue driving, but said perhaps the race could have been restarted later on.
"I'm not sure, I don't really know the condition on the track," he said. "It could have been alright but I agree and say it is better this way because really before it was just unreal.
"I was aquaplaning with full wets going 30 km/h. I could not keep the car on the road, it was ridiculous."
