The 2016 Formula One champion would have loved a Fernando Alonso-Lewis Hamilton partnership at Mercedes.
Nico Rosberg admitted that as a fan, pairing Fernando Alonso with Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes would have been his preferred choice.
“Ok, now that I’m a fan it’s very easy to respond,” Rosberg said.
“Everyone says Alonso and I say it too, because there would have been fireworks with Hamilton!
“As a fan it would be nice to see those sparks, but from the team side it couldn’t have been and they found a great solution.”
