Forums - Sports Discussion - Rosberg retires from F1 after winning world championship

Wow, that's very surprising.

I wonder what he'll do now (will he completely retire from racing or will he go to DTM or to endurance racing?) and who will take his seat at Mercedes.



Please excuse my bad English.

I actually think the opposite. What kind of strong character does it take to walk away from a sport where people are legitimately asking if he's the most undeserving champion ever? Vettel got in another car and proved that his wins at Red Bull were no fluke. What has Rosberg proven? That he was an average driver in a spectacular car and only won a championship because his team mate got incredibly unlucky.

Bravo Nico. I personally won't miss seeing him on the grid.



Should be a couple years of Hamilton victories again then



Good for him. Why stress yourself when you're good for life.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Well, at least he doesn't have to resign from a contract with Mercedes since he never had one with them #Panama Papers

I would have resigned as well if I was a millionaire and world champion. Enjoy the rest of your life, Nico.



Likely the only time he will beat Hamilton, lets be honest, with no mechanical failures he would of lost. Go out on a high.

Verstappen is under contract, not happening. Alonso or their youngster.

Vettel has proved he is like Button, only amazing in an amazing car.

Yup, so many people don't seem to understand this.

"BUT EVEN MORE MONEY?!?!?!"



Wow, just saw that on autosport, well done Nico!
