The head of the Board of Directors of Daimler AG Dieter Zetsche told an interesting story about how he learned of the decision Nico Rosberg to leave F1.
Niko the decision to retire was a surprise not only to the public and F1 fans, but for the top managers of the German company.
“In that moment, when I called Toto [Wolff], I came out of the shower and had no clothes – quoted by Autocar.co.uk Zetsche. – Then I thought again something happened with Lewis [Hamilton].
But I did not expect to hear what really happened”.
Dieter continued: “I respect this decision, Nico. Hamilton always says, “I want more and more wins, I want to break records and write his name in history”. And Rosberg said: “well, I have finally realized my dream. What could be better?” Both points of view have a right to life.
On the other hand, of course, it would be much easier and more enjoyable if our team were two world Champions for the upcoming season. Certainly, their presence in the team would mean a serious confrontation, but it is part of the show.
Now we need a new pilot. Let’s see how it turns out. I can’t say that Rosberg hurt me or disappointed. I respect his decision.”
