What they don't show are the 10 hookers inside the red Jet.

Fark!!

Nico Rosberg:
“Since 25 years in racing, it has been my dream, my ‘one thing’ to become Formula One World Champion. 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.
“This season, I tell you, it was so damn tough. I pushed like crazy in every area after the disappointments of the last two years; they fuelled my motivation to levels I had never experienced before. And of course that had an impact on the ones I love, too – it was a whole family effort of sacrifice, putting everything behind our target. I cannot find enough words to thank my wife Vivian; she has been incredible. She understood that this year was the big one, our opportunity to do it, and created the space for me to get full recovery between every race, looking after our daughter each night, taking over when things got tough and putting ourchampionship first.
“When I won the race in Suzuka, 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. 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… and then the lights went out and I had the most intense 55 laps of my life. I took my decision on Monday evening. After reflecting for a day, the first people I told were Vivian and Georg (Nolte, from Nico’s management team), followed by Toto.
“The only thing that makes this decision in any way difficult for me is because I am putting my racing family into a toughsituation. But Toto understood. He knew straight away that I was completely convinced and that reassured me. My proudest achievement in racing will always be to have won the world championship with this incredible team of people,the Silver Arrows.
“Now, I’m just here to enjoy the moment. There is time tosavour the next weeks, to reflect on the season and to enjoy every experience that comes my way. After that, I will turn the next corner in my life and see what it has in store for me…”
I love my car. Buy your own

Wow didn't see that coming i think Nico was lucky in motor racing terms to win this yrs title unlikely he would win another title if Hamilton was his team mate so good luck to him big call to call it quits at such a young age.

The replacement will me interesting, I wonder if they will select a designated No. 2 driver or try and get the best available. Imagine, for example, Lewis and Max on the same team...

I like where his head is at. Won the tittle is in a club that only has himself and Damon hill in. He obviously set a goal achieved it without killing himself and now can retire and enjoy his family.
The amount of shit that was put on him this year I wouldn't want to go back either.
It could also be a respect thing to his father who also only won one championship. Retiring now means they are equal.

I'm not surprised, given the changes next year there's every chance he'll go back to being a middle of the pack driver. His record doesn't show much until he was in the best car in the field. Might as well go out on top, he'll have made plenty of coin, got a championship  (whether through luck or not) and gets out without injury, can't ask for more then that.
