Nico Rosberg

Nico Rosberg's Driver Bio

A likeable character and very rarely outspoken, Nico Rosberg quietly drives to consistent finishes ahead of what the car can deliver.

Always a quick and competitive driver but never in the right car Nico Rosberg even managed to consistently outpace the return of F1 legend Michael Schumacher whilst fighting for the lower points positions.

In the few occasions where Rosberg has had the right machinery he has delivered faultless speed and precision to bring the car and the trophy home. This came to light when he arrived in Australia in 2014 with the Mercedes car which helped him take the title fight to the last race of the year.

Rosberg's Career High

Following in the footsteps of his father Keke Rosberg, Nico took pole position and a smooth race win at the Monaco Grand Prix in 2013.
