Hamilton ‘dominating’ Rosberg – Ecclestone image

May 23 (GMM/Inautonews.com) Lewis Hamilton is psychologically dominating his teammate Nico Rosberg.

That is the view of F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone.

German Rosberg managed to break Hamilton’s run of poles and wins recently in Barcelona, but Ecclestone nonetheless told Bild newspaper: “Lewis is very dominant, taking up a lot of space in a team.

“Nico has lost a lot on the track against Lewis — and therefore also the self-confidence,” the 84-year-old added.

And Ecclestone acknowledges that he would probably prefer if Hamilton manages to successfully defend his title this year.

“I am happy that we (F1) have him,” he said. “He is very important for formula one — at the moment he is the only driver who is a real rock star.”
