Nico Rosberg has launched a limited-edition book profiling his Formula 1 championship victory in 2016 and subsequent decision to retire from racing.

Rosberg claimed his maiden F1 drivers’ title in Abu Dhabi last month before announcing his immediate retirement from motorsport five days later.

Rosberg’s title victory was a hard-fought one, seeing off a season-long challenge from Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton to end the Briton’s streak of championship wins.

Now fans will get a chance to see some unique shots of the final months of Rosberg’s F1 career and title win in a special book, called Finally, that was announced via the German driver’s Facebook page on Christmas Eve.

“During the final months of my battle for the title, my highs and lows were documented by my friend Paul Ripke and immortalised in his fantastic imagery,” Rosberg wrote.

“Now, we can re-live those moments together: the drama of the final race, our emotions after the win and, finally, the announcement in Vienna that I was hanging up my driving boots forever.

“The first edition of Paul’s book didn’t make it into the bookstores before Christmas. But we made 1000 copies for family and friends. And you!

“There will be 50 books, which you can win in a charity raffle for ‘Viva con Agua’. And the 100 highest bids will get one book for sure, too.”
