According to speculation in Korea on Thursday, definite changes on the personnel front are on the cards for Mercedes GP in 2011.

Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg are staying put as drivers, but a significant shake-up in other areas is expected, following the Brackley-based team's difficult transition from the title-winning Brawn outfit.

When asked about the prospect of changes for 2011 on Thursday, Rosberg acknowledged the need for action.

"I wanted to be winning races and currently we are far away from that," said the German.

Asked what the personnel changes could be, including whether Jock Clear will still be his race engineer in 2011, he answered: "Exactly what the changes will be, I cannot say.

"A lot will come from Ross Brawn. There are procedures he has analysed in order to get more from people in certain areas," added Rosberg.
