Rosberg denies ‘destroying’ Schumacher in 2011

On his 100th grand prix, Nico Rosberg dismissed the suggestion his best achievement was “destroying” the great Michael Schumacher at Mercedes.

“No, I definitely would not say that,” he is quoted by Finland’s Turun Sanomat at the Hungaroring.

“This year, generally, Michael has done a really good job. I’ve just managed to be in front more often. I would not say I have destroyed the guy.

“Qualifying has gone very well, I’m satisfied, but that’s it,” the German added.

He may be currently beating F1’s most successful driver in history, but a glaring omission in Rosberg’s statistics is a single win.

Asked which of his 99 races so far was the best, the 26-year-old admitted: “I don’t know … it’s yet to come.”
