Nico's resignation a welcome tonic after Brexit & Trump. He reflected in achievement then rejected fast lane, materialism, career for family

Wow @nico_rosberg retiring?! I must say, extremely well put and easy to understand why. The wear & tear in F1 must be unreal!

I bet Wehrlein has dropped his investigation into finding out why he didn't get the Force India seat.

Nico R, god willing, has 50/60 years to not be a racing driver. Hope he hasn't rushed this. As an adrenaline junckie still can't believe it
