Rosberg would like to see Vettel in title fight in 2016

Nico Rosberg's retirement from the Russian GP played last October 11 in Sochi seems to have sealed the fate of the 2015 Championship. By being seven points behind Sebastian Vettel, the pilot Mercedes is not even certain of finishing vice-world champion, while his teammate Lewis Hamilton has a 66-point lead with four Grands Prix remaining at the end of the season.

“I will try to enjoy the last four races and win as many as I can”, Nico Rosberg told Bild magazine. “Alas, Sebastian overtook me in the Championship in Russia, but I will try to change that in America (during the next GP in Austin, Texas on October 25). I was even asked after the race if I was ready to help Lewis if Sebastian came back on him, but I don't think about that to be honest. I hope all three of us have a big fight for the title in 2016 »
