Nico Rosberg concedes: I will, therefore, change my tone

Nico Rosberg's vlogs have become a subject of attention in recent weeks and the one-time World Champion has responded to criticism he's received recently and concedes he may have to change his tone.

In a few of his recent editions, Rosberg has been spoken of former teammate Lewis Hamilton, suggesting his age has made him not as sharp as well as being critical of Max Verstappen for crashing out of the Belgian Grand Prix.

Both drivers have responded with criticism for Rosberg with Verstappen going as far to call him "the new Villeneuve". This has forced Rosberg to change his approach and he addressed this in his latest vlog.

“One of the things I hated most when I was still active as a driver was being confronted by journalists with criticism from former drivers. In my case it was often David Coulthard. It made me crazy, really terrible," Rosberg said.

“I like to give these analyses, but at the same time I have a lot of respect for the drivers. 

"So, as I said, I always hated it when I was confronted with criticism from former drivers. So I have to change something there. I don't want my former colleagues, whom I have great respect for, to hear that comment from me. I will, therefore, change my tone somewhat."
