World champion in 2016 Nico Rosberg said that, unlike Lewis Hamilton, he liked the tense situation inside the Mercedes when they fought each other for the title.
Recently, Lewis admitted that Rosberg atmosphere in the team improved, which allowed him to win a championship in 2017.
Lewis Hamilton helped Me a lot the conversation with Toto Wolff in late 2016
When the reporter AUTOSPORT.com asked Nico to comment on those words of Hamilton, he said, “Now I will read your quote Lewis Hamilton: “When you have two strong riders, the battle within the team similar to the strongest ongoing hurricane.” Yeah, that quote of Lewis, and I take it as a compliment.
That year I won. Perhaps that is why the situation was not positive for him. I would say the same if lost.
