Nico Rosberg is a former German-Finnish Formula One race car driver known as one of the best two best players in the sport alongside Lewis Hamilton. Nico entered the professional Formula One arena in 2006, with the team Williams, a team with which his father Keke Rosberg had been a World Champion back in 1982. In the initial phases of his career, Nico performed well, but didn’t win too many titles, but when he joined the newly reformed Team Mercedes in 2010, his career blossomed. In his successful career run with Mercedes, Nico has managed to score 23 Grand Prix and 30 pole positions. He and his teammate, Lewis Hamilton, dominated the Formula One arena and were constantly in the race to become the World Champions throughout the 2014-15 season, with Hamilton winning both times. In 2016 though, Nico became the World Champion and Hamilton ended the season with second spot. Surprisingly though, at the very prime of his Formula One career just after securing the World Championship, Nico announced his retirement from the sport, adding that he is going to continue his association with his team Mercedes.
