Nico Rosberg: 'Austria crash won't change future decision'

Nico Rosberg says that the events in Austria on Sunday will not affect his decision about the future.

Nico Rosberg has said that the events in Austria on Sunday will not affect his decision about the future.

Although Mercedes boss Toto Wolff called Rosberg's collision with teammate Lewis Hamilton "brainless", the Austrian chief insisted that it would not affect the negotiations over a new multi-year contract for the German driver.

Now, Belgian source Sporza quotes Rosberg as saying: "The incident on Sunday will not change my decision.

"I had victory within reach and lost it, which was incredibly hard to take and disappointing, but in the end I lost a race and Hamilton won it - that's it.

"I feel good at Mercedes. This is my racing family and I hope to stay here in the future."

Rosberg leads Hamilton by 11 points following the race in Austria.
