In 2016, Nico Rosberg surprises the Formula 1 world by beating favorite Lewis Hamilton in the world championship … and then announces his surprise retirement. Now the offer he declined to quit racing has been revealed.

He himself has revealed how that moment was when he received that offer: “I wanted to avoid being a pilot from the past or a pilot that no one wants on their team anymore. There was 100 million dollars on the table that I resigned.”

“I wanted a different life, you don’t have a flexible life when you’re competing. It was the best decision for my family, I didn’t think about money for a single second,” he says in ‘The Times’.

Rosberg left F1 with a world championship under his arm that he surely did not have. And he did it despite that millionaire proposal that was around 100 million dollars.
