/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates -- The strain of fighting against Lewis Hamilton for the past three years will have sapped the strength of Formula One champion Nico Rosberg. 

Cheap VaporMax/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .That verdict comes from a man who knows Rosberg better than most -- his father Keke Rosberg, the 1982 F1 champion.He has a lot of seasons behind him and Im sure that, especially, the last three seasons have taken a high toll, Keke Rosberg said in the F1 paddock at Abu Dhabi where his son clinched his first title on Sunday after being runner-up to Hamilton in the previous two years.Theyve been very hard seasons, because youre fighting for the championship for three years in a row, constantly, Keke Rosberg said. Its much tougher than trying to finish sixth. I dont know how much its taken out of him.Asked what he thinks his son will do next, the 67-year-old Keke Rosberg joked maybe he retires tomorrow.Actually, he expects his son to continue for a few more years yet.Theres quite a lot of mileage left in him, he said.Next season promises to be an intense battle as Rosberg defends his title and Hamilton tries to wrest it back. Furthermore, the 19-year-old Red Bull driver Max Verstappen will be pushing them hard, as will four-time F1 champion Sebastian Vettel -- whose Ferrari team ended the season without a race win.If you dont raise your game, you freeze ... You have a lot of talented people here who put in a big effort, Keke Rosberg said as he stood outside the Mercedes motorhome.The level is always high in Formula One. Look at Max, he is the teammate of (Daniel) Ricciardo. Or Sebastian, he is the teammate of (Kimi) Raikkonen, he continued. On that level, when you take the top three teams, all of them have been world champions already, or at Red Bull theyre all young talents. Thats the level we have.The hallmark of Rosbergs title-winning campaign was a steely resolve under Hamiltons pressure, allied to high levels of consistency.You never have a 100 percent season. Youre not going to win all the races. Its a bit like golf, Keke Rosberg said. When you hit the ball behind the tree, you have to recover from there. So even on a bad day, a golf pro plays a bad shot and recovers. Thats the difference. Its the performance on a bad day, those points count.He was partly speaking from his own experience, having won the 1982 title despite winning only one of the 15 races that season.Seeing his son win the title as the sun was setting in Abu Dhabi on Sunday evening was a strange feeling for Keke Rosberg.After the last two laps I was quite relieved, to be honest, Keke Rosberg said. I was a little bit nervous.Father and son were different kinds of drivers in different eras.Rosberg Sr. was a dashing driver who loved to bash his car around the track in an occasionally reckless manner, while Rosberg Jr. is far more meticulous and methodical.But the mutual admiration shines through.For me its the story of father and a son, purely. I could have been a dentist, makes no difference, Keke Rosberg said. Im happy for my son and thats it. What I did is so long ago. It was a happy time, but it doesnt carry you 30 years after.Keke Rosberg secured his title driving for the Williams team yet only won five races in his career, while 31-year-old Nico Rosberg already has 23 wins -- albeit in an ultra-dominant Mercedes car.He is (a champion). He is standing on his own two feet. Dont forget, I did like 114 Grand Prix in my life and hes now done 200 or something, Keke Rosberg said.So his level of experience and knowledge of the sport is so much higher than mine was. Also engineering, they are so much deeper in there than we were, its like a completely different world.We knew we had four wheels and thats it. Cheap Nike Vapor Max Shoes/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .com) - The game was all punts and field goals before Kodi Whitfields catch. Cheap VaporMax China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . Burris threw two TD passes, including a key 15-yard fourth-quarter strike to Bakari Grant that effectively countered a Toronto comeback bid and led Hamilton to a 33-19 victory. http://www.cheapairvapormaxshoes.com//>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over . Sydney coach John Longmire could only laugh when asked about a lopsided free-kick count in the AFL grand final.The umpires awarded Western Bulldogs 20 free kicks compared to Sydneys eight at the MCG, where the Swans fell 22 points short.A couple were clear errors from the whistle-blowers and led to set shots for the Bulldogs, while some were iffy at best. The minor premiers received a total of four free kicks in the first three quarters.Longmire noted it would be wrong to take anything away from the Bulldogs when asked about the discrepancy.But he was clearly far from impressed.Look the Doggies were good, Longmire said, having regained composure after a brief chuckle.All we can ask for is that they get paid both ways. Id have to sit back and have a look at it in the cool light of day before I can coomment on that. Mens VaporMax Shoes/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. .Longmire was unwilling to discuss specific examples, such as when Dan Hannebery had his legs taken out by a sliding Bulldogs players in a fourth-quarter contest.Hannebery suffered a knee injury and played no further part in the game, while the umpires waved play on and ruled the midfielder wasnt infringed.I dont know - do you guys think it should have been (a free kick)? Longmire quipped.Josh Kennedy, who starred for the Swans and finished second in Norm Smith medal voting, was also tight-lipped when asked about the issue.I feel like those sort of things tend to even themselves out and credit to the way the Doggies went about it, Kennedy said. Cheap NFL Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys From China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Wholesale Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaNFL Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> ' ' '
