FIA Formula 1 world champion Nico Rosberg will happily sit down with Valtteri Bottas to talk him through all things Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team, but will not be letting the Finn in on any team-mate secrets.

Rosberg told the media that Bottas had asked him for a chat, but the German is defiant that such a talk would only consist of matters relating to the team and not his ex “sparring” partner.

He has asked if we can have a chat soon and I am happy to do that, of course – but I will stay very, very neutral,” he told Reuters.

I won’t give away any Lewis secrets for example, I’ll just help him in a way to integrate better into the team.”

He was quick however to point out that the former Williams Martini Racing driver will have anything but an easy ride against the British, three-time world champion Lewis Hamilton.

“I would tell him ‘don’t expect an easy ride’, that’s for sure,” he said.

It’s going to be challenging coming into a new team with Lewis having been there for so many years and with the new regulations.

“Lewis is one of the best out there so the level is extremely high.”
