Having lost out to his Mercedes teammate by 18 points in the 2013 drivers’ standings, Nico Rosberg recently said that his goal is to beat Lewis Hamilton in 2014.
Although Rosberg enjoyed a stronger finish to the season and won two races to Hamilton’s one, the Brit was the more consistent performer in only his first season with the team.
"My goal was to improve since last year, which worked out fine for me with two wins," Rosberg is quoted as saying on Autosport. "But with a cleaner season next year, I want to stay in front of my team-mate on points."
It won’t be an easy task for Rosberg. Hamilton is a formidable competitor and has generally had the better of his four teammates during his seven seasons in Formula One to date.
