However, that number will reduce to three in 2018 as F1 tries to reduce costs.

"To be able to push the engine makes me think, I don't like the idea of going to three engines, I think that sucks". Rosberg's former boss Wolff said he believed Hamilton's drive was "astonishing" and suggested that he had the speed to win the race after starting in the pit lane. "Sprinting is what we are missing in F1".

Hamilton came from the back of the field in the recent Brazilian Grand Prix to finish fourth, but said performances like that won't be possible if drivers are more anxious about conserving engines. This is the first time I've pushed an engine like that. If you look at the most exciting races - particularly when it rains - we don't have those limitations. I often turn the engine down and they keep telling me to turn it up and I'm like "No, no, I prefer it down and I'll figure out a way to catch up in another way".

Drivers are now allowed four engines per year before incurring grid penalties, but the number will be cut down to three in 2018, as part of Formula 1's cost saving efforts.

"I don't think Sebastian Vettel will have a better chance next year", said Rosberg after watching the four-time champion make the most of Hamilton's rare blunder in Saturday's qualifying to claim his fifth win of the season ahead of Valtteri Bottas in the second Mercedes. McLaren-Honda's Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne have amassed a total of almost 400 grid penalties between them in the 19 races so far this year.

"If you look at the front guys, they were managing and that is what we are normally doing".

From next season cars will be heavier because of the introduction of the "halo" driver cockpit head protection system.

"The fact that these days we've got 100kg, the vehicle is going to be a bus next year, it's going to be so heavy it's going to be like a bleeding NASCAR next year. The braking distances get longer, the brakes are always on fire, on the limit", he lamented.
