Nico Rosberg may not have lost the plot, as some suggested in the wake of his outburst against Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton at Sunday's Chinese Grand Prix, but he is feeling the heat.Hamilton has won eight of the last 10 races and Rosberg, last year's runner-up in a title battle that went down to the wire, has been unable to assert himself in qualifying either this year.Rosberg's call for Hamilton to speed up might have seemed surprising, given that slower drivers would appear easier to catch and pass, but there was a logic to it – even if an equally selfish one.Had Hamilton gone faster, it might also given Rosberg more of a chance of beating him.The drivers and team met after the race for what Rosberg described as "constructive criticism" and agreed to move on.
