Liberty Media’s vision for the sport of F1 will kick in from 2021 and Rosberg feels like he has a small idea of what technical changes to the car could help influence what Liberty have envisaged for the sport.
Liberty Media wants F1 to be more competitive than it is at present as fans could get alienated from the sport if its competitive edge takes a hit.
Rosberg’s little stint on the race track alongside his father in Monaco has helped him decipher a strategy that could help Liberty Media carve out those 2021 rules.
His father was driving a 1982 Williams and that apparently gave Rosberg the idea of what the future of F1 should look like.
“I was looking at my dad’s car and it’s all ground effect,” said Rosberg.
“The aerodynamics are under the car. They could follow each other in the gearbox all the time.
“They [F1] have to go into that sort of direction. And hopefully they’ll manage [it by] 2021 at latest. Because that what’s we all need, for the fun.
“We need to see battles, fighting and touching wheels. That is one of the biggest problems because it’s as difficult as ever.
“Unfortunately at the moment it is not at the right place, and then the costs [need changing] to give more opportunities to the middle teams to have some success.” he added.
Rosberg feels that Liberty is doing all it can to bring about more entertainment around the sport but they’ll need to come up with some aerodynamic tweaks in order to promote overtaking.
“They are doing a good job because Liberty knows what entertainment is about,” said Rosberg.
“They really try to bring all that in and try to bring the young people in in different ways and that’s a great approach.
“So, this is all good. But the problem is, what pours through everything, is the two things that they are working as well but are much more difficult.
“It’s the cost and the overtaking. The aerodynamics are just too much so it’s as hard as ever to follow and that is such a pity. Sometimes a guy is so much faster, but he just can’t get close.
“That’s the key, because that’s entertaining. If we see battles, that’s awesome.” he concluded.
