The fellow-German and Mercedes AMG Petronas driver, bid farewell to his retiring teammate Michael Schumacher with glowing praises.

"This is a big loss for our sport. Michael did a huge amount to make Formula One so popular in Germany, and lots of fans switched on their TV sets because of him. He achieved so much. It has been and continues to be something special and a great experience for me to drive with him and against him. In the last three years we pushed the team hard together which will help us in the years to come. I wish him all the best for the future," said Rosberg on his Facebook page.

The rapport between the two over the duration of Schumacher's return to the sport has been amicable. It waits to be seen if Nico could share a similar status quo with new partner Lewis Hamilton. Or, is it going to be a repeat on the lines of the Alonso-Hamilton explosive feud?
