Retired Formula 1 driver Nico Rosberg sat down for a Q&A session ahead of this weekend's Mexican Grand Prix.
The 32-year-old German Mercedes star retired after beating his teammate Lewis Hamilton to the 2016 drivers' championship in dramatic circumstances.
Rosberg's relationship with Hamilton was in tatters by the end of the season and the Brit's professionalism was questioned over the tactics he employed in their final race together at Abu Dhabi.
Hamilton was determined to try everything in an effort to take the title from his team-mate and backed Rosberg into the clutches of the chasing pack.
“In terms of his tactics in the last race, you can understand the team’s perspective that they weren’t too happy with that," said Rosberg.
“But at the same time it’s easy to understand his perspective. It’s about the world championship so you can understand he wanted to try whatever it was possible to do. He did a really good job of it. He did it perfectly because I had no chance to try to overtake.”
Hamilton could wrap up his fourth world championship this weekend - a fifth placed finish in Mexico would allow him to become Britain's first four times Formula One world champion.
The two fastest drivers
Speaking ahead of the race, the retired Rosberg named the two quickest drivers he has ever raced against.
"Lewis [Hamilton] and Robert [Kubica] are the fastest guys I ever raced against, so when Robert asked me, it was an easy decision – because I know how fast he is, better than anyone else."
The 2016 world champion is currently helping Robert Kubica make an unexpected return to Formula 1.
Kubica, 32, raced Rosberg throughout his junior career before they both reached F1 in 2006.
The former BMW Sauber and Renault driver - who has not raced in Formula 1 since a rally crash in 2011 left him with significant injuries to his right arm - scored one victory during his five-year career in Formula One.
