Formula One: Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg avoids 'cow trouble' on Indian motorway

Greater Noida:

Formula One driver Nico Rosberg of Mercedes got a taste of driving on Indian roads when he narrowly avoided an accident with a cow.

The Mercedes driver expressed his experience on Twitter on Thursday and added that the incident wasn't unusual here.

"Yikes! Just had to swerve on the motorway in India because a cow decided to cross over to the other side! #nothingunusual," tweeted the 28-year-old German driver.

Rosberg, meanwhile, is among billions who are sad at the retirement of Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar - though the German admits he is no cricket fan.

"I heard he is retiring. It is a great pity, especially for the Indian public. I met him last year when I was here for the race. He came across as a true F1 fan," said Rosberg on Wednesday ahead of the Indian Grand Prix this weekend.

"The game is not popular in Germany and even in Monaco where I stay now. I have tried following it but I don't really like it. I love football but the thing is I am not really good at it," said Rosberg at a Puma event.

He is enjoying some banter with Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh, who is also promoting the same sports and lifestyle brand.

"Yuvi and I are having some chats on Twitter these days. He seems like a fun guy. I hope to see him during the race weekend."
