Breaking News – Nico Rosberg retires!
Newly crowned world Champion Nico Rosberg has sensationally announced his retirement to from F1 following a gruelling season that seen him come out on top of fellow Mercedes driver and former World Champion Lewis Hamilton.
Rosberg has claimed the reason behind his retirement: “I have climbed my mountain; I am on the peak, so this feels right”.
Rosberg edged out team mate Hamilton by just 5 points to claim his first world championship crown.
Keke Rosberg (Nico’s father) also won the World Championship back in 1982 and Nico and Keke are only the 2nd father son combination to lift the Championship crown emulating brits Graham (1962, 1968) and Damon Hill (1996).
Nico is also the first driver since Alain Prost in 1993 to retire as World Champion.
