Rolex & Formula 1

This Week-End

Formula 1 Season Begins

My life has revolved around timing and my racing has always come down to those final split seconds.” 

—Nico Rosberg

Nico Rosberg sent shockwaves through the Formula 1 paddock when he announced his retirement almost simultaneously with his 2016 world championship win. Nico is pictured below with Sir Jackie Stewart and Mark Webber.

In 2018 Nico Rosberg interviewed Formula One founder Bernie Ecclestone. They had a fascinating conversation which you can watch below:
