Rosberg not worried about Hamilton pairing
20 September, 2012
According to the paddock grapevine, the German’s Mercedes teammate next year will either be Michael Schumacher, who needs to renew his expiring contract, or the current McLaren driver Hamilton.
“For my part, I am happy if we keep going as we are now,” said German Rosberg, referring to Schumacher.
“But if it’s different, that’s ok as well. I’ve been following the rumours, of course,” Rosberg admitted. “Personally, I’m happy with my position with the Silver Arrows,” he said, dismissing suggestions that he might move over to McLaren to replace Hamilton.
As for whether having the highly-rated yet finely-balanced Hamilton as his teammate would bother him, Rosberg insisted: “Not at all. I’ve known him for so many years.”
