He faced off against the returning Michael Schumacher and easily defeated him. After that, he faced Lewis Hamilton, and things became heated between the two. Finally, after winning the tournament in 2016, he announced his retirement.

Rosberg had a strong work ethic throughout his career, talking to engineers and mechanics and approaching each circuit with the care of a cartographer. Rosberg was regarded by F1 experts as “among the most promising emerging stars”. Initially, the media and fans compared him to his father Keke, the 1982 world champion.

In 2008, the German driver earned his first podium finish at the Australian Grand Prix as a Williams driver. In the same year, he finished second in Singapore.
