Mercedes motorsport boss Norbert Haug is adamant that rumours linking Nico Rosberg to Ferrari are an April Fools’ joke being told a month late.

Earlier this month, Italian car magazine AutoSprint claimed that Rosberg could be off to Ferrari at the end of this season, replacing Felipe Massa.

The magazine even went as far as to say that Ferrari had already made an approach to the German.

However, Haug insists this is nothing but a joke.

“Last weekend it was the first of May, not the first of April. So the joke has come a month too late,” he told Bild.
