BiographyEdit

Early careerEdit

Rosberg started karting at the age of six. In 2000 he and furture Mercedes rival Lewis Hamilton were teammates. Rosberg then progressed up to German Formula BMW in 2002, where he went onto win the championship. In Decmber 2002, at the age of 17, Rosberg tested a Williams-BMW Formula 1 car for the first time. His success in Formula BMW resulted in a move to drive for his father's team in the Formula 3 Euro Series for 2003. Rosberg did well there, and stayed on for 2004. In early 2004, he was granted another taste of Formula One by doing a test session with Williams one again.

In 2005 Rosberg declined an offer of a place on the aeronautical engineering course at Imperial College London, instead joining the ART Grand Prix team in the newly created GP2 Series, becoming the first driver to win the GP2 title. In late 2005, Rosberg was officially confirmed as a Williams driver for the upcoming season. Rosberg recorded the highest score in Williams history in the Engineering Aptitude Test, administered to all new Williams drivers.
