Rosberg as good as Vettel says Berger
24 May, 2011
May 24 (GMM) Sebastian Vettel is a brilliant driver and his countryman Nico Rosberg is in the same league according to Gerhard Berger, who was part of Vettel’s first Grand Prix win in 2008 as the team co-owner on the Toro Rosso pitwall.
“He is a killer,” the great Austrian told Bild newspaper, “and his great advantage is he doesn’t look like it. He looks like a nice young man from your neighbourhood.”
Two years older than 23-year-old Vettel is fellow German Rosberg, who has not yet won a single Formula 1 race despite having almost two seasons more experience.
But the son of 1982 world champion Keke Rosberg has consistently beaten Michael Schumacher at Mercedes GP, prompting Berger to claim, “I see him on a par with Vettel. All he lacks is a fast car.”
