Schumacher a test driver?
To step into the shadow of one of the greatest drivers (Shumacher) of all time is not an easy task. Nico Rosberg has managed very well. With two consecutive podium finishes and finishing in the top 5 for the past 4 events Rosberg is making a case that he is currently the strongest driver for Mercedes GP.
What does this mean for Schumacher? Rosberg’s success could land Schumacher a role of pitting frequently to test different tire compounds to find the fastest setup during race time. Not a role the 7 time world champion expected with his big return.
