The Englishman is characterized by his ability, speed and talent, attributes with which he has annihilated most of his teammates. The only one who can boast of having beaten him is the German Nico Rosberg, who took the 2016 scepter from him after an intense season that put the category and the team itself by the hair Mercedes.

Nico Rosberg and Lewis HamiltonRosberg, who retired from the category just after his consecration, seems like the right person to talk about the Sevenfold. "He is a phenomenon and the man goes very fast"the German said to Infobae in a exclusive interview when asked if his former teammate was blunt for having the best car.

Precisely, the fact of having defeated him in the same team is something that makes the German proud. “Alonso (Fernando) couldn't beat Lewis with the same car in his first year (at McLaren in 2007)… It was very important (to beat him). Every year I can see more what quality Hamilton has, who is almost considered the best, he is phenomenal. But with Fangio, of course! We have to put Fangio in the same place ”.

Regarding how that 2016 season was, Rosberg confessed that he won the championship from Lewis, “With a lot of preparation, a lot of dedication and putting my whole life in that year… I had a perfect year. You have to have a perfect year to overtake it because he (Hamilton) is incredible, he gives his best all the time ”.

Nico Rosberg“When you fight for the World Cup it is hard psychologically because it is very intense and every day of your life you have to think about that issue, how can you do your best and there is a lot of politics because the complication is that your rival number 1 is in yourself team and there are 1.500 people who work in that team and having the rival in your same team is very complicated ", Agregó.

In the interview, conducted by Darius Coronel, Rosberg also remembered his years sharing a team with his compatriot Michael Schumacher. “It was a very important experience for me. Schumacher is a man who did everything perfectly, with all the things, with the team, working with the engineers, his physical preparation, and I learned a lot. He is also an incredible fighter, all day he had the fight in his head. As a teammate it was complicated for me because he knew how to fight and put you in mental difficulty… He knew that I was going to go to the bathroom before going to classify, so if there was only one bathroom, he would lock it; then I was there, in total panic and not knowing what to do in the most important moment of concentration… These are things that he really enjoyed doing ”.
