Another Rosberg...

Nico Rosberg has won the Formula BMW championship - with two races to go. The 17-year-old Finn, son of the 1982 World Champion Keke Rosberg, has won seven of the 18 BMW races this year and has now built up an unassailable lead in the championship.

Prior to launching his career in car racing young Rosberg was an accomplished kart racer, notably as team mate to McLaren protege Lewis Hamilton. Rosberg is expected to move up the racing ladder next year but at the moment it is not clear in which championship he will be competing.
