Jet on standby for Rosberg baby birth

Nico Rosberg has a private jet on standby as the minutes tick down to fatherhood.

The Mercedes driver's wife Viviane is set to give birth to their first child any day now -- in fact, Bild newspaper reports that the due date actually came and went on Tuesday.

However, Rosberg has now had to travel to Belgium for F1's return to action, but not without putting in place a plan for a rapid return to Monaco.

"60 kilometres away in Liege, a private jet is waiting," Bild reports. "So too is a driver, to bring Rosberg quickly to the airport if necessary."

Rosberg's boss Toto Wolff commented: "When the baby comes, Nico may fly back immediately."
