Nico Rosberg opted to retire at the end of last year's campaign, but is still of the fans' favourites.

Former Formula One racing driver and current Formula One World Champion enjoyed a decade-long career to remember.

He introduced himself to Formula One in 2006 with Williams, where his father had won the 1982 championship.

In 2010, he opted to join the re-branded Mercedes team, formed by Mercedes' takeover of 2009 Constructors' Champion Brawn GP.

He had his best days with Mercedes, winning 23 Grands Prix and earning 30 pole positions.

Rosberg will be remembered for his fierce rivalry with teammate Lewis Hamilton, finishing second behind him in the World Championship in 2014 and 2015.

In 2016, after an intense duel with teammate Hamilton, he finally became Formula One World Champion. The championship remained undecided until the final race, the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Rosberg announced his retirement in December last year, but is still one of the best known names in the sport.

In a recent Q&A that he took on Twitter, Rosberg turned to fans and answered all kinds of questions.


#Asknico was going great for the German–Finnish ex-star, until he received a really funny question:

"Have you learnt how to turn a steering wheel yet?" a fan asked, in relation to one of Rosberg's famous maneuvers when he skipped two turns in order to lead the race.

The ex-driver saw the funny part of it and managed to answer in style: "Still trying to figure it out. but its turning right that has been the hardest part to get my head around. #asknico"

In the comment section, another tweet was quick to remind Rosberg of a poster fans brought last year.

A sign reading "Nico (6): Caution – Corner (right turn) ahead – Don’t forget to turn! #HammerTime" was seen at Silverstone on July 9, 2016 in Northampton, England.

The sign referred to the last-lap incident in Austria last year.

Then, Rosberg overshot the apex and ran Hamilton out to the edge of the track. The maneuver resulted in a collision that ultimately handed Hamilton the win, while Rosberg narrowly missed the place on the podium.
