While Rosberg was never troubled en route to his 19th career GP win from pole position, Hamilton scrambled up the field from 10th on the grid and was bedevilled by technical problems.
At one point, Hamilton lost power as his car was in the wrong mode, but the team could not tell him the issue due to radio restrictions.
Mercedes chief Niki Lauda confirmed both the team's drivers experienced the same issue, but Rosberg "fixed it quicker".
