Only time you have to much fuel is when you are on fire.

Nico Rosberg has stunned Formula One with the shock announcement he was retiring only days after achieving his lifetime ambition by winning his first world championship with Mercedes.

Key points:

Nico Rosberg has not said what he plans to do next
"I am on the peak, so this feels right," he says
Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff hails "brave move"
"From the moment when the destiny of the title was in my own hands, the big pressure started and I began to think about ending my racing career if I became world champion," the German said on Facebook on Friday.

"On Sunday morning in Abu Dhabi, I knew that it could be my last race and that feeling cleared my head before the start. I wanted to enjoy every part of the experience, knowing it might be the last time.

"I took my decision on Monday evening."

The driver had given no previous indication of his intentions and had been at the team factory in Brackley on Thursday after a trip to his German birthplace of Wiesbaden.

Rosberg, who was due to attend the governing FIA's gala prize-giving in Vienna later on Friday along with team mate and triple world champion Lewis Hamilton, did not say what he planned to do next.

He will leave with a record of 23 wins in 206 races and as only the second son of a champion to take the title, following in the footsteps of 1982 winner and father Keke.

Rosberg was also the first German driver to win the Formula One championship in a German car.

"Since 25 years in racing, it has been my dream, my 'one thing' to become Formula One World Champion," he said.

"Through the hard work, the pain, the sacrifices, this has been my target. And now I've made it.

"I have climbed my mountain, I am on the peak, so this feels right.

"My strongest emotion right now is deep gratitude to everybody who supported me to make that dream happen."

His sudden departure leaves a vacancy that any driver on the grid would fight for, Mercedes being the most dominant team in the sport with 19 wins in 21 races this season.

They have won the drivers' and constructors' titles for the past three years in a row and will start next season, despite significant rule changes, as favourites again.

Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff hailed a "brave move" and said it was "testament to the strength of his character".

"The clarity of his judgement meant I accepted his decision straight away when he told me," he added.

Wolff said Mercedes would take time to evaluate their options.

Thought that might be the case I'm posting from the phone and that's painful enough without checking if it's already been done

If you simply edit a post the edit doesn't get seen unless it's done immediately.
