With German Rosberg faster than Michael Schumacher in the past two seasons but still seeking his debut victory, team boss Ross Brawn asked the 25-year-old to have "faith" in Mercedes to eventually build him a winning car.

"I have the opportunity to help the team, and it's a fantastic opportunity," Rosberg is quoted by Brazil's Globo Esporte.

"I wouldn't say I'm uncomfortable or something, I feel very comfortable in being part of a project and challenge like this.

"But of course, I am a racing driver, and above all, I want to win. I wouldn't say I'm impatient for it, but I hope for it soon. I just need to judge whether the team will be able (to win) soon, but it is a fact that the team will succeed eventually.

When there is interest from other teams it's a good thing for my career

"The big question is when and at the moment it seems that it will still take a while."

Rosberg, linked with Ferrari, McLaren and championship leaders Red Bull, admitted that the speculation is doing him no harm.

"Obviously when there is interest from other teams it's a good thing for my career. But it's a matter of time. Nothing more than that," he said.
