Top Gear chats to Nico Rosberg
Mercedes F1 driver takes some time out to go sideways and talk shop…
Posted: 12 Feb 2012
Not that you'd have thought Nico to be star-struck in the office. In 2010, his first year racing with Michael and Mercedes, he finished 7th in the driver's championship and scored 142 points, two points shy of Felipe Massa, but a whopping 70 points clear of Schuey.
Last year, Rosberg finished 7th again with 89 points, to Michael's 8th placed finish of 76 points. That's two years, and twice that the 26-year-old has outscored Schumacher.
"It's quite cool," he says, on outpointing Michael. "I'm really happy about that achievement, naturally I'm pleased. It does go through my mind a little bit when I'm racing, but not so much," he says, a light glimmer in his eye.
