Rosberg ‘open’ to Mercedes role in Formula E

Reigning World Champion Nico Rosberg is 'open' to getting involved in Formula E but is no rush to find his next project after retiring from Formula 1.

Following the announcement that Mercedes will be joining the all-electric series from 2019, Rosberg was rumoured to join the set-up as team boss and reportedly held talks with Formula E chief Alejandro Agag.

And while Formula 1 is "definitely over" for him, he is keen to explore other opportunities within motorsport.

"Now I'm in a great situation in my life — it's like a discovery phase," said Rosberg.

"Racing will always be fun to me, so let's see what happens. I will always be passionate about our sport and there will always be options to be involved.

"It does not have to be tomorrow, it could be in ten years, but I will be open to all possibilities."

Rosberg also said he was curious to see how Mercedes can match-up with the likes of BMW and Porsche in Formula E.

"This is the future of the world and it will be exciting to see when all those manufacturers put their cards on the table," he added.
