Mission accomplished: world champion Rosberg rules out F1 comeback


Accra, Dec. 3, (GNA/dpa) – Newly crowned Formula One champion Nico Rosberg has insisted he will « quite definitely not » change his mind and return to the sport after announcing his shock retirement from driving.

« When I was six years old and started out, the dream was very clear: I wanted to become Formula One world champion and that’s what I pursued all along and it’s mission accomplished for me, I’ve done it, » Rosberg said late Friday upon collecting his championship trophy in Vienna.

« It’s a dream come true and now it’s on to other things, with family first. »

Rosberg secured his first – and now only – title at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix last Sunday by finishing second behind Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton. He took the championship from Hamilton by five points.

« I never give up, so if I’d finished second I would have gone for another year, for sure, » Rosberg said.

Rosberg’s contract with Mercedes was due to run to 2018 and the team must now quickly find a replacement to partner Hamilton for the 2017 campaign which begins late March in Australia.
