Rosberg-Heidfeld to swap seats for 2009?

Thu, 25 September 2008, 01:03

Despite earlier speculation about his future proving untrue, the future of Nico Rosberg is once again the subject of paddock rumours.

Several weeks ago, before Heikki Kovalainen was confirmed for 2009, McLaren dismissed suggestions it was looking to buy out the young German’s Williams contract.

The rumour had been triggered by famous driver manager Willi Weber, whose charge Nico Hulkenberg is a Williams test driver this year.

Weber hinted that Rosberg could be set to move on soon.

Williams and Rosberg have since pledged to stay together in 2009, but the Swiss newspaper Blick is from Singapore reporting the possibility of a shake-up.

Blick claims that Rosberg, 23, and BMW-Sauber’s Nick Heidfeld could exchange cockpits at the end of this season.
