Nico Rosberg stunned Formula One on Friday with the shock announcement that he was retiring only days after achieving his lifetime ambition by winning his first world championship with Mercedes.

Rosberg, who was due to attend the governing FIA's gala prize-giving in Vienna late on Friday along with teammate and triple world champion Lewis Hamilton, did not say what he planned to do next.

He will leave with a record of 23 wins in 206 races and as only the second son of a champion to take the title, following in the footsteps of 1982 winner and father Keke.
