Mercedes Motorsport Manager Toto Wolff sees the protracted contract negotiations with Nico Rosberg relaxed. We’re not flirting anywhere, he’s not flirting anywhere,”Wolff said at the Grand Prix weekend in Montreal.”It’s a normal process. This is about details.”
Rosberg’s contract with the currently dominant Formula One team expires at the end of the year. He was also recently associated with Ferrari, where he could replace the Finnish Kimi King of the series as a new teammate of the four-time World Champion Sebastian Vettel.
The four-time seasonal winner and two-time World Cup second signaled repeatedly that he wanted to stay with Mercedes.” I can only repeat that I am happy here and would like to continue here for many years,”the 30-year-old in Montreal stressed. Rosberg has been driving for Mercedes since 2010 and is the first overall winner of the Canadian Grand Prix.
Berger: Hamilton can be a ticking time bomb
For him, the former Formula One pilot Gerhard Berger conducts negotiations with Mercedes. The Austrian praised his patron in the “World on Sunday”: Mercedes could not find a better driver.” So it’s perfect for everyone, and that’s why there’s basically no other solution for Mercedes than Rosberg, and vice versa, it’s the same thing,”Berger said.”It’s not the same thing.” Nevertheless, as always, the point is to make the best of what is possible.”
In the”Image on Sunday”he highlighted the advantages of Rosberg compared to his teammate Lewis Hamilton. Berger described the British World Champion as a “first-class bird of paradise” and thus played on his unexplained lifestyle.
“The interesting thing about him is that he is striking across the streams alongside the line, at the same time being first-class on the track,” Berger said. “The interesting thing about him is that he is striking across the streams at the same time on the track.” But he can also be a ticking time bomb.”Family man Rosberg was”the exact opposite. The team knows that he is at the meeting and tells them what needs to be changed in the car.
