F1 » 'Extraordinary' Rosberg praised for 'raising his game'


Two of F1's most highly-esteemed stalwarts - Sir Frank Williams and Sir Jackie Stewart - echo Ross Brawn's conviction that Nico Rosberg is destined for great things off the back of a superb start to 2010 at Mercedes Grand Prix

Shame he can't overtake, or defend a position. He couldn't even overtake the stricken Red Bull at Bahrain. World Champion no way. Winner possibly if he's very lucky.

@tom

Have to disagree tom, he dragged that Williams car far higher up the grid that it should have been, Williams rates him and he knows a thing or two about driving talent !

Also making Schumacher look very average, I know there are reasons for this but he's doing a good job, fair chance he might win a race this year.

He is a great representative for the sport. Right now he is a "good" race car driver and I expect in his career he will become a "great" race car driver. He has everything it takes, and now is with a quality team. Best of luck Nico! :)

@taz - I'm not disputing his qualifying abilities. Or his competitive edge over Schumacher (though I think the car suits his style better - rather than show up Schumi's fading skills). I just think his race performances have been average at best.

Points are rewarded from races, Rosberg is 2nd in the championship standings. Isn't 2nd in the championship standings better than 90% of drivers? I wouldn't call that average.

@blah - and Massa was leading the world championship after Malaysia but would you call his season so far anything more than average? I don't care how many points Nico has lucked out on so far - his performances are average.
