Rosberg targets Mercedes title

Nico Rosberg admits, I want the F1 title as a Mercedes driver
Nico Rosberg has admitted that his focus for the 2010 F1 season has to be to fight for the championship title as he looks ahead to his first season with the Mercedes GP team.

Rosberg joins the team having spent his entire F1 career to date with Williams, and could yet form a German superteam with Michael Schumacher as speculation continues that the seven-time champion could come out of retirement to join the Silver Arrows.

Rosberg himself admitted that he doesn't know whether or not the speculation linking Schumacher with the role as his team-mate is true or not, but admitted it would be a 'fantastic move' if he was to come out of retirement and launch a comeback.

“At the moment I am driving both cars and I can choose which one!” he said. “Hopefully my team-mate will be known soon, the rumours are strong for Michael Schumacher but I don't know if it is true or not. If he were to join it would be a fantastic move.

“For me it would be a big challenge and a fantastic experience.”

Regardless of who his team-mate turns out to be, Rosberg admitted that his main focus for 2010 has to be on securing silverware as Mercedes looks to continue the success enjoyed by Brawn GP this year.

“It's a dream come true for me to drive the Silver Arrows and I am looking forward to representing the team in the coming years,” he said. “It is an honour to be the first German driver to drive for the Silver Arrows for such a long time and that is a great thing when you consider the heritage Mercedes has in motorsport.

“I really hope to get a lot of success with Mercedes in F1. I want to win races and to fight for the title.”

Nico says he would not be the number two driver at Merc because At Mercedes, there is no hierarchy. It has always been commonplace, that there are two equal drivers," Rosberg told Bild newspaper. HA HA HA. JET is going to crap himself when he reads the BULLCRAP Merc PR machine is at it again.

What, Hannah? You mean there's no excitement in F1? Some would say there's been more excitement since he left than when he was there and making every race and title a boring procession. The titles have been closely-fought and less predictable, and some new superstars have stepped up to the table. Then there have been all the off-track team shenanigans and FIA politics.
