Formula 1 World Champion Nico Rosberg retires aged 31

Formula 1

Newly crowned Formula 1 World Champion, Nico Rosberg, has announced his retirement from the sport.
The German has taken the world of motorsport by surprise after winning his first title at the Abu Dhabi circuit on Sunday.
Rosberg´s time with Mercedes and team-mate Lewis Hamilton has been strained at times with both men falling out and team bosses having to step in.
Rosberg’s father Keke won the same championship back in 1982, making the 31-year-old German the second man, after Damon Hill, to have won the title after his father.
In a career that started with the 2006 Bahrain GP, Rosberg won 23 races and was on the podium 57 times.

      Seems like an intelligent man, has earned Millions from the sport, gets a world title to match his dad and then retires… I expect to hopefully enjoy the rest of his life in a safer manner and with the money to do it comfortably!
