Mercedes on Monday revealed Nico Rosberg as the team's first driver for 2010.

In the wake of the Stuttgart marque's majority buyout of the former Brawn GP team, 24-year-old Rosberg is Mercedes' first German driver since Karl Kling and Hans Herrmann in 1955.

Despite intense speculation linking Michael Schumacher with the other cockpit, compatriot Nick Heidfeld is regarded as the more realistic choice.
