Has Nico Rosberg just hinted that he is open to a return to racing?
The German rode off into the sunset after the conclusion of the 2016 season on the back of his maiden championship.
His relationship with teammate Lewis Hamilton had soured over the previous few years, and the pressure of it was cited as one of the main reasons for him stepping away.
The idea of him returning to the fast lane would have appeared remote.
That is, until now.
In a Q&A session on Twitter over the weekend Rosberg stated he may feel compelled to return to the track if one race was brought back to the F1 schedule.
Probed further for some specifics, Rosberg responded:
“I’d bring back the South African Grand Prix at Kyalami, that sounds damn cool.”
Appearing to have an epiphany, Rosberg then exclaimed:
“Las Vegas! That is the absolute, top notch, highest ever possible…Las Vegas Grand Prix! And deciding the championship there, that would be pretty special. I would have to make a come-back for that race."
Liberty media may want to tap him up now, amidst reports that they’re struggling to generate money and justify the recent upheaval with the sport.
As well as flailing interest in F1, they have been left scrambling for new ideas.
Maybe an all-star race could be in the works? Only world champions past and present make up the 20-man field.
See who comes out on top. It would certainly get a lot of media attention that’s for sure.
The rate Hamilton’s going at, there won’t be many new world champions for some time to come anyway.
