Frankfurt - Formula 1 world champion Nico Rosberg has denied he could keep his adrenaline flowing by moving into the all-electric series Formula E in 2018.
Mercedes, with whom the 31-year-old German won his world championship before quitting Formula 1 late last year, is contemplating entering Formula E.
But when asked if he would be interested in spearheading a Mercedes team, reigning F1 champion Rosberg answered: "I cannot imagine that".

He is quoted by Speed Week at the Spobis sport business congress in Dusseldorf: "I'm interested in Formula E, it's fast and it's a success.
"It's still a young racing series, it's going in a completely different direction and I find it cool to follow it. Formula E has a good future."
