· ‘Nico is a great ambassador and appreciates the opportunities he has been given’ – says Laureus Ambassador Coulthard
· Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton on front row of grid at Monza
· Laureus Formula One gala night raises over €200,000 to help improve the lives of young people in Italy

ITALY – Nico Rosberg went into the Italian Grand Prix at Monza, with Laureus Ambassador and former Formula One star David Coulthard predicting that the young German could win a Laureus World Sports Award.

Coulthard, who won 13 Grand Prix in a career lasting 15 years, was speaking at a star-studded gala charity night in Milan, to raise funds for the Italian Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, which is celebrating its tenth anniversary.

Asked if he could see his fellow Laureus Ambassador Nico Rosberg winning a Laureus Award, Coulthard said: “ No question! He has had an amazing season in Formula One, he’s a multiple Grand Prix winner and leader of the World Championship. Nico is a great ambassador and appreciates the opportunities he has been given. ”

Rosberg lines up alongside his MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS team-mate Lewis Hamilton, himself a winner of a Laureus Award in 2008, on the front row of the grid for the race at Monza. Rosberg currently leads Hamilton by 22 points in the World Championship.

Now an expert Formula One analyst, Coulthard applauded the competition between the two. He said: “They are two great drivers of the modern era in F1. They are on the same team and are battling head-to-head for the Formula One World Championship. What we are witnessing are the emotions that sport brings out in people.”
The Laureus gala charity night, staged at the Mercedes-Benz Centre in Milan, had a strong Formula One focus, ahead of today’s race. In addition to Rosberg, Hamilton and Coulthard, also present were former Formula One world champion and Laureus Academy Member Emerson Fittipaldi and French favourite Jean Alesi.

Edwin Moses, Chairman of the Laureus World Sports Academy, also attended the event with fellow Academy Members Giacomo Agostini, Franz Klammer, Mike Horn and Alberto Tomba. Other guests included Davide Cassani, Marco Bortolami, Antonio Rossi, Alessandro Fabian, Alessia Trost, Aldo Montano and Garret McNamara.

The charity night raised more than €200,000 for the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation to support Italian projects, which have helped more than 2,000 disadvantaged young people in its ten years of life.

The first Patron of Laureus was Nelson Mandela. At the inaugural Laureus World Sports Awards in 2000, he said: “Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.”

This has become the philosophy of Laureus and the driving force behind its work.  Laureus is a non-political international charity that works to improve the lives of young people around the world through the use of sport.
