Newly-crowned Formula One champion Nico Rosberg on Friday retired from racing with immediate effect in a shocking announcement, just five days after winning his maiden title. Rosberg stunned all while revealing his decision and said he isn't willing to put himself through the wringer, choosing not to make sacrifices again after achieving his long cherished dream.

Rosberg made the announcement at a Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) press conference where he received the trophy for becoming the world champion. He then wrote a lengthy farewell speech on Facebook.

Ahead of the FIA Prize giving ceremony in Vienna, Austria, on Friday when he will be officially crowned, 2016 Formula One World Champion-elect Nico Rosberg yesterday touched down in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on the first stop of a whistle-stop global celebration tour.

Fresh from his triumph and celebrations in Abu Dhabi, Nico made the home of the team's title partner PETRONAS his first destination to celebrate his maiden world title. He was joined by Head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport Toto Wolff, in honour of the team's third consecutive World Constructors' Championship, and President and Group CEO of PETRONAS, Datuk Wan Zulkiflee Wan Ariffin.

Lewis Hamilton kept up his end of the bargain by winning the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, but the victory wasn't enough to overturn a 12 point deficit as his Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg was crowned a World Champion for the very first time in his career, becoming the first racer ever to take 206 races to achieve such a feat.

Hamilton and Rosberg both made excellent starts to the race and escaped the attentions of the chasing pack, but an interesting race strategy adopted by Max Verstappen allowed the young Dutchman to move ahead of Rosberg after the latter pitted.

 Mercedes superstar Lewis Hamilton gave his title aspirations the best possible boost, comfortably beating teammate Nico Rosberg to pole position for tomorrow's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix with a fantastic time of 1:38.755, the only sub 1:39 time set in the day. Rosberg is still very much in the hunt though as he will line-up alongside Hamilton on the front row of the grid as Silver Arrows recorded their 14th front row lockout of the season.

Hamilton's pole was his 12th of an incredible season and the 61st of his career as Mercedes completed another run away season with 20 of 21 possible pole positions. He will need to convert his pole to a win and also hope that Rosberg doesn't record a podium finish to win the Drivers' Championship.

Lewis HamiltonThe battle to be crowned Formula One World Champion will go down to the final race of the season in Abu Dhabi thanks to Lewis Hamilton producing a trouble free drive in the midst of a heavy downpour at the Interlagos circuit in São Paulo, Brazil. The win is Hamilton's first in 10 attempts in Brazil and the perfect time for him to achieve that feat to keep himself in the hunt for the Drivers' Championship.

Hamilton cut Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg's lead at the top of the standings down to 12 points after a flawless performance in conditions that were far too treacherous for racing and saw a couple of drivers escape unhurt from what could have been potentially serious accidents and witnessed two stoppages and a large chunk of time spent behind the safety car.

 Reigning World Champion Lewis Hamilton continued to keep the pressure on teammate Nico Rosberg in the race for the Drivers' Championship by taking his 11th Pole Position of the season and the 60th of his career at the Autódromo José Carlos Pace in São Paulo, Brazil.

Only fractions of a second separate the two Silver Arrows heading into tomorrow's Brazilian Grand Prix with Rosberg completing a 13th front row lock out of the season for the Mercedes team setting a time of 1:10.838 narrowly behind Hamilton's 1:10.736. The Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen was surprisingly the third quickest car on the track, setting a time of 1:11.404, more than half-a-second behind the Mercedes duo, who were simply in a class of their own.

Nico Rosberg said he is not thinking about hypotheticals ahead of the Brazilian Grand Prix on Sunday as he seeks his first Formula One drivers' championship. The 31-year-old German currently leads Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton by 19 points with two races remaining in the season, reports Xinhua.

"Despite not winning the last two races, I feel like I'm performing well," Rosberg told reporters here on Wednesday. "I'm not thinking too much about the mathematics because that will get me nowhere. I prefer to concentrate on what is happening now and my focus is on winning the next race."
