Scuderia Ferrari German driver Sebastian Vettel will not give up on catching current Formula One championship leader Lewis Hamilton in the drivers’ standings, according to retired world champion Nico Rosberg. With four races to go until the end of the season, Sebastian Vettel is 59 points behind Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton with a maximum of 100 still on offer.
Nico Rosberg says his fellow German is a “fighter” but needs a “miracle” if he is to win a fifth world title this season: “Ferrari always come back strong.” – Nico Rosberg said, as reported by BBC Sport earlier today – “It is so difficult for Sebastian now. Lewis has such momentum, everything is going in his direction. Sebastian needs a miracle to come back but he is a fighter and he will not give up. It will remain interesting so let’s see how far he can take it.”
Meanwhile, Nico Rosberg says that Polish driver Robert Kubica is being evaluated by Williams over whether he can make a return to Formula One next season. Robert Kubica, 32, has not raced in Formula One since a rally accident in 2011 left him with only partial movement in his right arm. Nico Rosberg is part of the former BMW Sauber and Renault driver’s management team: “Williams is evaluating him so we need to be patient,” he said – “In my 20 years of racing, the fastest guys I saw were Hamilton and Kubica, so I know how fast he can be. I am exploring and enjoying this management side of it – it’s different doing it for someone else. I was my own manager, but this is another good way to stay connected to the sport.” – the former Mercedes driver concluded, as reported by the British media on Friday.
