It is being rumored that Dann will be fired from the Rosberg car due to the "less than exceptional" performances so far in first 5 MF1 races. Dann has only managed (3) 8th place finishes so far this season. Toto Wolff and Paddy Lowe have been seen in the paddock chatting with drivers and we found Niki offering his own "top 3" drivers list for consideration.
We tried to catch up with Nico for a word but saw him sneaking out through the bleacher area.
Dann commented on this on Sunday in Fuji saying "I am considering any options at this point. I know I am a championship level driver and this POS Mercedes keeps holding me back. If they want to fire me I believe I will land a ride the following minute. I aint scurred of Toto or Paddy. I mean look at me in this picture, I'm a winner!"
Dann was fired from Mercedes immediately following those comments....
Lewis Hamilton had no comments on the situation , only one gesture:
"Winners forget they're in a race, they just love to run"
