This doesn't happen very often in F1 and motorsport in arena, so when it does every jaw gets drops, this happened today to Formula 1 fans around the world after 2016 Champion Nico Rosberg published that he will stop racing in F1 with immediate effect.
Apparently, even Mercedes-Benz was taken by astonishment by Nico's statement, especially since the German had signed a two-year contract continuation for the 2017 and 2018 F1 seasons back in the summer. His choice was apparently acted just one day after his ultimate action in Abu Dhabi, last Sunday when he became the first German chauffeur to triumph a f1 World Championship at the wheel of a mercedes-AMG F1 vehicle.
I took my choice on Monday evening. After thinking over for a day, I expressed my decision to Vivian and Georg Nolte, from Nico’s management team, followed by Toto. Rosberg expressed in a facebook post.
Nico made the public statement just before the 2016 FIA Prize Giving in Vienna, Austria, being approved in his choice by none other than the Head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport, Toto Wolff. As per Tota, this is a courageous choice by Nico and creed to the strength of his character. He has selected to leave at the steeple of his occupation, as World Champion, having attained his childhood dream.
The comprehensibility of his judgement conveyed I evaluated his choice continuous away when he expressed me.” expressed Toto Wolff.
The statement most definitely moved like a bomb in the Mercedes-AMG F1 team, which now has an open compartment just as Formula 1 enters a brand-new generation of rules commencing with 2017. Recently found as Buggati is working F1 2020 concept car. Nico Rosberg has raced in 206 Grand Prix, with 23 win, 30 pole positions and 20 fastest laps. Winnigh 2016 World Championship remains his rank.
There are a lot of gossips revolving his latent substitution, but it is probably too early to gamble on an individual driver. Mercedes approved and former DTM champion Pascal Wehrlein has the biggest possibilities, but there were also gossips that declared Fernando Alonso was also contacted by Benz.
