Top Gear chats to Nico Rosberg
Mercedes F1 driver takes some time out to go sideways and talk shop…

Within minutes, he's slinging the big lug around the track with the grace of a ballerina, making it squeal, slide and slalom. We head for the skid pan, where he demonstrates, with utter ease, how sideways a big, V8-powered Merc will go. "This drifting thing, it's harder than it looks," he says, with the Merc gliding pitch perfect. Yeah sure, Nico. Occasionally, he looks in the rear view mirror to check I'm not about to spontaneously empty my digestive tract onto his neck.
Did I mention he's quick?
