Nico Rosberg ‘justifies’ the choice of Vasseur

Former Formula 1 driver and 2016 world champion with Mercedes, Nico Rosberg, has commented on the appointment of Frederic Vasseur as Ferrari’s new team principal, replacing Mattia Binotto. The German ‘justified’ the choice of the Maranello-based team.

“I see that this arrival is causing a lot of discontent. It is incredibly difficult to occupy this position,” Rosberg admitted in an interview with German TV channel ‘Sport1′.

“When I see what Wolff does at Mercedes, I have to say that he confirms that he is the best current team principal and certainly one of the best of all time. It is not possible to find similar competence for Ferrari,” the former Williams and Mercedes driver went on to explain how the level of the Austrian team principal is unmatched.

Ferrari was founded in 1947 by Enzo Ferrari, in Maranello, in the province of Modena. It is involved in the Formula One world championship, where it holds the record for the number of world Constructors’ titles won (16), and in the FIA Sport Prototypes and Endurance world championships. The official symbol is that of the prancing horse on a yellow background, the color representing the city of Modena.
