Hamilton is a tough nut, incredibly fast, aggressive – Berger

Gerhard Berger says he is ready to sit back and watch Mercedes’ two stars fight it out for the 2016 title.

Not long ago, the F1 legend headed the negotiations for Nico Rosberg’s new contract with the German team.

But now, Berger says he is impartial once again.

“For me, it is now about the sport again. May the better one win,” the former McLaren and Ferrari driver told Austrian broadcaster Servus TV.

However, it is Rosberg who has the upper hand at the moment, having won the last three races on the trot and even taken an 8 point lead after Singapore.

“That Nico can win is a big message to the outside,” said Berger, “because Lewis (Hamilton) is a tough nut — one of the best I’ve seen. Incredibly fast, incredibly aggressive.”

When asked if he thinks Rosberg can keep that lead until the chequered flag of the Abu Dhabi finale, Berger answered: “Of course he can.

“He had the chance two years ago and lost it only in the last race. This year he has that chance again.

“But Lewis is of course not to be underestimated. He could suddenly explode once again. Of course, he also has his weaknesses, like in the last race, so we will have to wait and see who is ahead at the end,” Berger added.
