Rosberg wants to stay at Mercedes for long

Nico Rosberg

Mar.12 (GMM) Nico Rosberg has revealed he wants to stay at Mercedes GP for “a long time”.

After four mainly fallow seasons with Williams, the 24-year-old thought he was switching to Brawn for 2010 to have Jenson Button as his teammate.

Ultimately, amid the Mercedes takeover, the great Michael Schumacher decided to launch a F1 comeback, leaving Rosberg alongside F1′s most famous ‘number 1′ driver.

But the Brackley based team has vowed equality between Schumacher and Rosberg, and it is rumoured that the younger German is in fact the most comfortable at the wheel of the new W01 car.

And he told Finland’s Turun Sanomat: “I want to continue in this team for a long time.

“It is a real top team, and we have a strong capacity to win championships into the future,” added Rosberg.
