Rosberg happy to pair with Hamilton

Thu, 27 September 2007, 03:41

Nico Rosberg said on Thursday that he would happily become Lewis Hamilton’s teammate at McLaren.

Amid intense speculation that a disgruntled Fernando Alonso is set to leave the Woking based outfit, Rosberg – albeit with a solid Williams contract for 2008 – is estimated to have the highest chances of filling the seat.

“We get along well,” the 22-year-old German, referring to the similarly aged Hamilton, is quoted by the news agency ‘dpa’ as saying at the Fuji Speedway.

“So one day I could imagine that, sure.”

Sir Frank Williams, however, insists that he is not prepared to sell Rosberg’s contract; even to a very high bidder.

“I want my team back at the front,” he commented, “and I can only do that with the best drivers.

“Our obligation for 2008 is to give Nico a car that is good enough at least for podium places.”
