2016 Formula 1: Who will be Mercedes’ No.1?

Will it be third chance lucky for Nico Rosberg in 2016? Who secure the second place in last two seasons. Or defending world champion and his Merc team-mate Lewis Hamilton win a third consecutive Formula 1 drivers’ title.

Recently Nico Rosberg says he is determined to make 2016 “my year”, after two consecutive championship defeats to his teammate Lewis Hamilton.

The Mercedes driver said the lowest point came in Austin, where he threw away a race win – and later his cap – allowing Hamilton to wrap up the title with three races to spare.

“That was a very, very tough moment,” German Rosberg recalled during an interview with the broadcaster RTL.

“But I was also able to fight back again with three wins consecutively and very dominantly,” he said.

“It was cool to do that and now I have tried as much as possible to carry it over to this year. But unfortunately that is difficult to do as the car is new, the situation is new,” Rosberg acknowledged.

Lewis Hamilton says that he is wary of the threat posed by opponent Ferrari as he begins his hunt for a fourth F1 title at next weekend’s Australian GP.

“Ferrari has caught up and Nico is always a strong opponent,” Hamilton said.

“I believe that we have a good car, but Ferrari were posting some impressive times during the tests – both on the fast laps and on longer runs.

“We are certainly in for a good fight, but after all that’s exactly what everyone wants. In any case, I’m looking forward to it very much.”
