Nico Rosberg has refused to confirm reports that he will definitely stay with the Williams team beyond 2007.
Team boss Sir Frank Williams has already indicated that the impressive German youngster is set to retain his seat next year, but it is understood that there are some conditional clauses to be met in Rosberg’s contract to also make it valid for 2008.
It is also rumoured that Rosberg’s manager-father Keke has been making enquiries about next year with other teams, following his son’s impressive start to his second season in F1.
“I think that I am staying here,” Rosberg is quoted as saying by the newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, “but it is way too early in the season to say anything for sure.”
He also refused to confirm suggestions in the media that he is driving as well as formula one sensation Lewis Hamilton this year.
“No, I would never say that,” Rosberg insisted. “Hamilton is driving really sensationally.
“My job is to do a good job in my car and hope that at some point I also have the equipment to drive right at the front.”
