Nico Rosberg tells Lewis Hamilton: ‘I consider myself 100% German”
THE GUARDIAN – Nico Rosberg has described himself as “100% German” following Lewis Hamilton’s latest jibe at his Mercedes team-mate’s upbringing.
After his triumph at the British Grand Prix on Sunday Hamilton was asked how valuable it would be to win Rosberg’s home race in Germany on 20 July.
Responding with a grin, Hamilton said: “To be honest, Nico has never actually been in Germany, so it’s not really his home race.”
Hamilton then recounted a tale of their karting days when Rosberg used to stand by a flag of Monaco, given he was raised in the principality from four months old after being born in Wiesbaden.
In response to Hamilton’s comments, following the first of two days of an in-season test at Silverstone – with his team-mate to take the wheel on Wednesday – Rosberg said: “Anyone can judge however they want.”
