Rosberg denies 'destroying' Schumacher in 2011

By on Friday, July 29, 2011

Jul.29 (GMM) On the occasion of his 100th grand prix, Nico Rosberg dismissed the suggestion his best achievement was "destroying" the great Michael Schumacher at Mercedes.

"No, I definitely would not say that," he is quoted by Finland's Turun Sanomat at the Hungaroring.

"This year, generally, Michael has done a really good job. I've just managed to be in front more often. I would not say I have destroyed the guy.

"Qualifying has gone very well, I'm satisfied, but that's it," the German added.

He may be currently beating F1's most successful driver in history, but a glaring omission in Rosberg's statistics is a single win.

Asked which of his 99 races so far was the best, the 26-year-old admitted: "I don't know ... it's yet to come."
