F1: Rosberg joins Mercedes GP


Mercedes GP has finally confirmed at least one of its drivers for the 2010 season of F1. There were rumours flying around that German driver Nico Rosberg was on their radar, and he is exactly who they have signed.

Rosberg had already declared in October that he would not continue to race for Williams for a fifth-straight season and had indicated that he wanted to switch to a more promising team - one that could provide him with a car that could win races. And the Mercedes switch does just that.

Meanwhile Mercedes GP team principal, Ross Brawn, has said that he believes Rosberg is the perfect choice to aid Mercedes in their 2010 assault. Brawn had also worked with Nico's father, 1982 World Champion Keke Rosberg, earlier in his career.
