 The 31-year-old German won his first world title on Sunday, beating Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton by finishing second in the final race in Abu Dhabi.

“I have climbed my mountain, I am on the peak, so this feels right.” Rosberg said in a Facebook post just minutes after making his decision.

It’s however thought that maybe Rosberg’s decision to quit came as a result that he might not be able to defend the title next season after a stiff competition from his teammate Lewis Hamilton.

Rosberg won nine of this season’s 21 grands prix, beating three-time champion Hamilton by five points.
