Nico’s off

Ahead of this weekend’s Abu Dhabi GP, Nico Rosberg has announced that it will be his last race with Williams.

Rosberg has spent his whole F1 career with the team, and has said that this weekend will be strange because of it.

It’s widely expected that he will be off to Brawn – a straight swap with Rubens Barrichello is rumoured – or to McLaren as replacement for Heikki Kovalainen.

Mercedes – whose engines power both teams’ cars – want a German driver as they’re a German company, and Rosberg is the strongest prospect (even though his famous father Keke is Finnish, Nico is actually German).

So which team do you think he’s most likely to be in? And how will he fare against either teammate – Jenson Button or Lewis Hamilton?

As much as I like Nico, I want to see Kimi and Lewis in Mclaren. I dunno……maybe this is coz i started watching F1 when Hakkinen was at his best, and I’ll always picture them with a Finn and a Brit.
But then, Nico’s half Finnish is’nt he???? Damn…….I dont know what I want!

i think nico should go to brawn or toyota where he can atleast have a crack at winning or getting on the posium regularly. he’s young and very talented, with his experience i believe he’s a future champion. i think he can set a car up better than button or hamilton (am not anti-british), so either team-mate would benefit from that. he seems to have driven the wheels off that williams, especially this year, and now deserves a seat in a good car that gives him an opportunity to fight for a win. really looking forward to next year. finaly, i think bruno is gonna be dissappointing.

I agree with Lucas M on that team list

I still fink button does not deserve his world champion title the pressure got 2 him whereas the competition in this season and the one before did not.

But in my opinion nico shouldnt go 2 brawn if button is there because them both are consistant drivers he should be at mclaren and be a consistant driver just like how ferrari have there team set up

Why don’t mclaren look at Sutil? He’s quick, german and he gets on well with hamilton so wat’s the problem??

I just feel Adrian Sutil can be a little erratic sometimes. But i still feel that he is a good driver though. Aparently Mclaren did consider him at the end of 2007 when Fernando Alonso left the team and were looking for a replacement.
