Rosberg Denies Brawn Link

After Rubens Barrichello, Nico Rosberg also denied the constant rumors linking him to a seat with Brawn GP next year, as well as the Brazilian driver's suggested move to Williams F1. According to some late reports from the Brazilian media, it appeared yesterday that Barrichello had already inked a one year deal with Frank Williams' outfit, with the possibility of a one-year extension afterwards.

The move would have allowed Rosberg to step into the Brawn GP car next year, alongside Jenson Button. With Mercedes now very close to signing an engine supply deal with the Brackley based team, the German marque has every intention of seeing a countryman drive their Mercedes-powered car in the 2010 championship.

However, while in Sao Paolo preparing for the upcoming Brazilian Grand Prix, Rosberg told the EFE news agency that he knows nothing of such a deal between him and Brawn, or Barrichello and Williams.

I have spoken with Frank Williams and I know that absolutely nothing has been completed,” said the Germany-licensed driver, according to the aforementioned source.

Barrichello, on the other hand, admitted that there have been – or still are – plenty of discussions between Brawn and Williams lately, but the no contract has been signed yet. No matter how the talks will escalate, Barrichello can only feel honored that he is offered that many options to continue his F1 career.

I haven't signed any papers, but that it's true there are talks with Williams and with Brawn, there's no doubt. Today I feel very honored that there are teams trying (to sign me) and that my situation is a lot better than for some time,” said the 37-year old veteran, who is still very much alive in the title fight this season.
