Yes, it was a stipulation of his new contract with Mercedes... Lewis insisted there could only be one alpha-male. :twisted:

And, I'm assuming he refused to take one for the team... as usual? :whip:

I woke up to this news in my Facebook feed, first I thought it was a joke, especially with Nico still having two years left on his contract. but I checked the BBC and SKY websites so it's true. I'm surprised, but I understand wanting to spend time with his family, F1 is tough on family life being away so much.

I'm happy for him achieving his dream and wish him the best for the future.

here's the article from Sky Sports:

A big shock but his reasonings are understandable, I wish him well for the future. :wavey:

Good for Nico, well played.

Going out on a high and in complete control of his future. And only 31 years old.

I wonder what will happen with his sponsorship deals, etc. Will they, will he continue with some of them now as the current world champion, yet retired F1 driver?

A friend of mine told me that Nico had announced his retirement!
Like a lot of people, I thought it was a joke... until, I researched it!

WoW! Good on you, Nico! Congrats! Enjoy your family!
