Mercedes chairman, Niki Lauda to help Nico Rosberg bounce back

Championship rivals Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg have got off to very different starts to their Formula 1 summer break.

A happy and relaxed world championship leader Hamilton headed to Barbados, where he took part in a raucous and scantily-clad street parade.

Meanwhile Bild reports that German Rosberg, who suffered four consecutive race defeats to Hamilton in July and lost his long-held points lead, headed to Ibiza.

Although he lives in Monaco, Rosberg has a home in Ibiza where his wife Vivian owns an ice cream parlour, and they reportedly plan to simply relax with their daughter.

Mercedes team chairman Niki Lauda recently travelled to Ibiza to catch up with Rosberg, and it seems that another visit may now be on the cards.

 “We will talk with him and discuss the problem,” said the F1 legend, referring to a lean run for Rosberg that culminated in an easy defeat at the hands of Hamilton at Hockenheim.

“He must again believe in himself, and then he will be a problem for Lewis once again,” Lauda told Blick.

Hamilton now leads Rosberg by 19 points in the standings.
