This was the drive of a champion. Well, not quite, because the man who won the Mexican Grand Prix cannot now finish the 2015 Formula 1 season as champion, but it was a performance worthy of the accolade.
The big question is whether Nico Rosberg can make a habit of what he produced on F1's return to the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez for the first time in 23 years, and use his victorious display as a platform on which to build a title tilt in 2016.
In all honesty, Rosberg has not given Lewis Hamilton much to worry about this season. Such has been Hamilton's superiority that he was able to clinch his third world title with three races to spare.
