Nico Rosberg will not advise Bottas

Published on 01 Feb 2017 17:13

Nico Rosberg has revealed that Valtteri Bottas has asked to sit down with him, but Rosberg will not give him any tips on how to beat Hamilton. Bottas will now partner Hamilton at Mercedes after Rosberg retired after winning the world championship.

"Yes, Valtteri asked to sit down with me," Rosberg said. "I am happy to do that, but I will not give him any tips or give away Lewis' secrets, although of course I know him very well. I will remain neutral."

The German will so be attending five or six races next season and is looking forward to watching the season ahead not as a driver, but as a fan.

"I will of course continue to follow developments and I'm looking forward to seeing the new car and will definitely be at the track for five or six races," he continued. "I will continue to work with the sponsors."

"We are simply the best team and have the best chance. But Red Bull and Ferrari can never be underestimated. I'm still a huge fan of our sport and I'm already excited about the first tests."
