#5 2008 Australian GP
Rosberg showed brilliance in the first race of the 2008 season where he went on to grab his first podium ever in the Formula 1 circuit, after starting seventh on the grid. He drove a gritty race, one which saw the likes of Jenson Button and Sebastian Vettel clash, forcing them to retire. Rosberg also finished ahead of Fernando Alonso. Through all the commotion, the German drove a perfect race with a sub-par car and showed the world that he could match his dad, if not go one step better.
