Default Nico Rosberg Retires!

How about that! Reached his goal and is moving on. Said it was his toughest year ever and he is standing on the peak so he decided now was the time to retire.

Mercedes is looking for a new driver for next year. So, who will it be?

Hard to imagine Mercedes being okay with that.

I believe his contract runs through 2018. After that, yes WEC makes sense.

Or NASCAR Craftsmen Trucks­čĄö

Did Bottas get re-signed by Williams ? I thought they were sweating him a bit because no other decent rides available. I just recall Claire Williams saying they were evaluating options. If he's not locked down, I think he's your guy. If not, then agree on young gun and that goes to Wherlein
