Nico Rosberg said he will never again bring his own motor home to Istanbul.
Finland’s Turun Sanomat said the Mercedes driver is the only member of the F1 grid not to be staying in local hotels this weekend.
It means he can avoid the notoriously bad Turkish traffic jams.
But German Rosberg said: “It’s definitely the last time I do it.
“The transporting charges are too high compared to the benefits gained,” he admitted.
