Red Bull could spoil Rosberg’s F1 title – Stewart

Sir Jackie Stewart has warned that Nico Rosberg’s bid for title glory this weekend could be spoiled by the Red Bulls.

The German driver only has to finish third to guarantee his championship victory over Lewis Hamilton, but Red Bull’s team boss Christian Horner has warned that a “tentative” Rosberg could open the door to his fast and keen drivers.

F1 legend Stewart agrees ahead of the Abu Dhabi finale: “I think the two Red Bulls cars will be very, very competitive. That’s what could decide the weekend.”

He told the Guardian newspaper that Ferrari will also be pushing for a good final result this weekend, “So we have four drivers capable of disturbing Nico Rosberg from having what I would call a calculated race”.

Another former F1 driver and Scot, Paul di Resta, agrees: “It is Nico’s title to lose.

“But the one danger for him is that he’s too cautious, as he was in Monaco, and maybe Malaysia, where he collided with Vettel.

“If the Red Bulls smell an overtake, they will go for it,” the former Force India driver and now Williams reserve added.
