Ollie Kew, Top Gear magazine:
Nico Rosberg has retired from Formula One with immediate effect. The German Mercedes-AMG F1 driver made the shock announcement at the 2016 FIA prizegiving in Vienna less than a week after clinching his first world championship title at the 2016 Abu Dhabi grand prix.
Rosberg has had an incredible career, and has managed to cap it off with a hard-fought championship win. It takes guts to stop when you’re well and truly ahead, but he’s done it. Kudos.
