This is F1Minute and it’s the 23rd November 2009.
Mercedes GP confirmed today that Nico Rosberg would be one half of their 2010 lineup. Rosberg joins the team after four seasons at Williams, and he says: “I am really happy to be a part of the Silver Arrows re-launch in 2010 as a driver for Mercedes. No other brand in Formula 1 can look back on such a long and successful tradition in motor racing. I am very proud that I will now drive for the new Mercedes team and work with Ross Brawn.” For his part, Mr Brawn says: “2009 was Nico’s best season in Formula 1 to date and we look forward to seeing his development continue with us at Mercedes next year.”
Meanwhile, Mario Theissen has admitted they are no clearer on the future of the ex-BMW team. He said: “The situation has not changed. The team still does not have a grid slot. We expect to get one, but it is not done yet.”
That’s all for today, please join me tomorrow for another F1Minute.
