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

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.

Alonso would give us good races and fun fights with Hamilton, but they already have history, and I doubt Mercedes wants to have problems with their two drivers again.

Good drivers retire at 35-38. They're still able to win races and championships at those ages.



Very wise, do not want to have such tragic ends as Senna or Schummacher. Congratulations on a beautiful championship and may he have a cool rest of life.



My grammar errors are justified by the fact that I am a brazilian living in Brazil. I am also very stupid.

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.

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

Well I mean, he's not like Alonso where he gets absolutely everything out of the car, but he has certainly punched above his weight in that ferrari.

Schumacher suffered his injury while skiing.



all I'm getting from this thread is: the fastest car wins duh.
Isn't that the same reason why Hamilton won the last few WCs and Vettel before him? All these drivers are on pretty much the same level. The fastest and most reliable car wins. What driver you put in the seat is almost irrelevant.

I dunno, kind of expected him to outscore his teammate convincingly.

Kimi Raikkonen, while past his prime, isn't exactly a slouch. A lot of people who thought Vettel was a good driver in a great car expected Vettel and Raikkonen to be going toe-to-toe. That clearly hasn't been the case.
