Nico Rosberg says his offer to Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel still stands. After dominant Mercedes finished first and second in Melbourne, 34 seconds clear of Vettel in third place, there was an amusing exchange in the post-race press conference between the two Germans.
After Rosberg said he hopes Ferrari can catch up soon, Vettel hit back: “Be honest. Seriously? You hope you slow down?” Rosberg insisted he was in fact serious, as it is “important for the sport and the fans” that Mercedes has some other teams to race this year.
So Vettel jokingly proposed that Mercedes should make its garage “public for Malaysia” so that “everyone can have a look”.
