Rosberg to stay involved with F1
Nico Rosberg says he wants to remain connected to F1 following his shock decision to quit Mercedes and retire.
The new world champion stunned F1 and the German outfit to such an extent that Mercedes' team chairman Niki Lauda said a silver-clad comeback for the 31-year-old in the future is now "impossible".
But Rosberg is not ruling out remaining engaged with the pinnacle of motor sport.
"The sport is my passion and I think the best sport in the world," he is quoted by DPA news agency. "And so I am sure I will be involved in some way."
But Rosberg said he has no intention of thinking about what involvement he might have at the moment.
"First of all I will have a huge holiday," he said. "We have not booked a return flight."
