Welcome to this special video that will hopefully start off a new series on the channel and does pose an interesting question; What if Nico Rosberg after winning his one and only world championship at the end of 2016 at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, decided to not retire and continued alongside rival Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes for 2017 and 2018? Would Rosberg have done better than Valtteri Bottas in close competition with Lewis Hamilton? Would Nico Rosberg have won a second drivers world championship? And what would have been the ripple effects throughout the grid if Nico never retired? For answers for these questions, make sure to check out this video.
I will also analyse why Valtteri Bottas’ F1 career would currently be turning out very differently had Rosberg decided to remain in F1 and at Mercedes.
