Ask the Expert

A Vick já havia descoberto essa série de entrevistas bem humoradas do Pois, nessa semana foi a vez de Nico participar da brincadeira.
Não terei tempo de traduzir tudo, mas mesmo assim farei uns comentáriozinhos em cor de rosa.

So, Ask the Expert – Nico Rosberg

Q: Last year, your team boss Frank Williams celebrated his 600th Grand Prix, but in what year was his first F1 entry, long before the formation of the current Williams team?
Nico Rosberg: The year was 1969! The race? I will have to guess… Zandvoort?

Luane: Praticamente o empregado do mês!

Q: You won the GP2 championship back in 2005, while your ART team mate Alexandre Premat finished in fourth. Last season, however, Premat won his own championship - in what series?
NR: Holy Moses! Obviously he didn’t win in DTM. Must have been the Le Mans Series.
Correct - with Audi.
Luane: Nico ligado nas paradas! Eu ia amar ver DTM, mas confesso que não consigo me organizar com o Speed e tenho para mim que eles passam as corridas muito atrasadas.
