F1 LIVE: Three F1 teams confirm name changes as Lewis Hamilton left ‘proud’ of Toto Wolff | F1 | Sport

Nico Rosberg does believe his former foe Lewis Hamilton may well scoop a record eighth Formula 1 world title next season, but it doesn’t sit too well with him.

Rosberg and Hamilton were Mercedes teammates for four seasons and battled it out for the world title between 2014 and 2016.

Hamilton beat Rosberg in 2014 and 2015 but revenge was carried out in 2016, after which Rosberg retired from the sport.

 “We’ve seen flashes of brilliance from the Mercedes team just recently,” Rosberg recently told the Daily Mail.

“They lack consistency. But look at Austin. They were challenging for the win there and actually had the fastest car over the weekend.

“So we’ve seen that they’re starting to understand the car, and they just have the problem that you still lack consistency.

“I would be happy if Mercedes won, because that’s kind of my racing family from the past,” he added.

“But then Lewis, I’m neutral there. I just would like a great fight for the championship, and may the best driver win. But I’m not biased in that sense, obviously.”
