Hamilton ‘more talented than me’ says Rosberg

Nico Rosberg says he is open to becoming friends once again with Lewis Hamilton.

The pair have admitted they were once childhood “best friends”, but when paired at Mercedes they shared an acrimonious relationship as title-duelling teammates.

Even after Rosberg’s retirement, Hamilton recently answered “nothing” when asked what he thinks about the German today.

But Rosberg says he has no hard feelings about their difficult relationship in F1.

“I had to rely on succeeding with diligence, absolute dedication and zero compromises. It was the only way I could do it,” he is quoted by Bild newspaper.

“There are drivers in formula one who were more talented than me. Maybe my teammate. He is one of the best drivers of all time and an incredible opponent.”

As for their tetchy relationship, Rosberg said: “Five months have passed now. I don’t know why this (being friends again) should not be the case.”
