Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg sees no issue in the recent management shake up within the team and thinks he will be better off in the long term for it.
Toto Wolff was brought into Mercedes from Williams during the off season as a replacement to long standing motorsport director Norbert Haug. It has also been rumoured that Ross Brawn too could face the axe, with Wolff or McLaren’s Paddy Lowe tipped to replace Brawn.
Rosberg doesn’t see the changes affecting the team for 2013.
“This season shouldn’t be affected much at all, not initially anyway because the main people in charge of building this car haven’t changed,” he said. “So there is still a lot of stability in that region.
“Going forward, looking at the big decisions for next year and things like that, there are some big changes coming in. And that’s where these management changes will have effect, it’s more long term. That is a good thing, because short term we need stability and long term, to become an even better racing team. I think change, to some extent, has been a good thing, and will be a good thing going forward.”
Rosberg is entering his fourth year with the team that gave him his maiden Formula 1 victory in last years Chinese Grand Prix.
