Reigning Formula 1 world champion Nico Rosberg took the world by storm last year, deposing Lewis Hamilton from the throne of the best driver in the world as he roared to his first world championship win.

Sadly for Formula 1 fans, Rosberg's first would also be his last as he promptly chose to retire shortly after claiming the title in Abu Dhabi.

Rosberg felt that he had achieved all he needed to achieve and chose to leave the sport in a cloud of glory.

However, the German did not go completely cold turkey, and has been keeping a close eye on this year's almighty tussle for the championship crown that he vacated.

Sebastien Vettel and former teammate Lewis Hamilton have been engaged in a fierce battle for Rosberg's crown with Ferarri's resurgence finally providing a viable threat to the monopoly that Mercedes had in the sport.

Perhaps Rosberg is missing the thrill of the race having seen how competitive the championship has been this year.

He has regularly taken to his own personal Twitter channel to share his opinion on the happenings in Formula 1 this year.

It seems that Rosberg could tentatively be thinking of a return to the sport after an interesting tweet in which he was replying to fans in a question and answer session.

Rosberg was asked which track he would most like to see return to the F1 calendar, replying that he would love to see the sport return to Las Vegas, even intimating that the possibilty of tearing around Las Vegas might even be enough to coax him out of retirement.

Sin City has previously hosted two Grands Prix in the early 1980's, but the track felt like it had kind of been dumped in the parking lot of Caesars Palace and did not make for an exciting race in the slightest.

There have been rumours of potential investment from China to help ensure Las Vegas reclaims its spot on the calendar, with many believing that a night race would make for quite the spectacle.
