Nico Rosberg is creating a furore in the Exterme E with his own team. The 2016 single world champion won the first-ever championship in 2021, so he has been successful from moment one. The move to Formula 1 as a team boss is really never going to happen for the German, he told AS.

Rosberg and Formula 1

"Many people have asked me if, now that Extreme E is doing so incredibly well, would I ever want to become team boss of a Formula 1 team. My answer is a definite no," Rosberg says. He argues that the nice thing about Extreme E is that there are not too many races. Currently, the electric SUV class season has five races a year, while Formula 1 has 24 Grand Prix weekends on the calendar next year.

"That is a full-time living. There is very little room in the world championship to spend time with family, friends...." Rosberg himself has had to make many years of sacrifices as a driver, but never with that: "I never want to do that again. That intensity, that dedication, that rigidity in life... I love my life now and that means I could never have a full-time job in Formula 1."

Rosberg is currently still involved in the king class of motorsport, but in the role of reporter. On behalf of the German arm of Sky , he attends a select number of GPs as an analyst. So that, judging by his words, seems to be where he will stay for the time being.
