The 24-year-old German's comments, to the Swiss specialist publication Motorsport Aktuell, will only intensify speculation that countryman Michael Schumacher is contemplating a sensational return to the grid he departed at the end of 2006.

"It would be a very interesting challenge, and a super lineup," Rosberg, who has already been named as Mercedes' first driver for the 2010 season, said.

The former Williams driver, however, denied that has willingness to have 40-year-old Schumacher as a teammate indicates the move is therefore likely to happen.

"Honestly, I have no idea," he said.
