Why on earth did Nico Rosberg quit? We’d have loved to see him defend his title against Lewis Hamilton. But is this exactly why he quit?

We consider his move ‘ballsy’, given that quitting at the top is not everyone’s cup of tea. But has he made sport suddenly look like a sales target? We discuss this in our special episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast.

Who will Mercedes replace Rosberg with? And will Rosberg’s retirement make them go slow on Hamilton’s impending sanction for his disobedience in Abu Dhabi? Talk of Rosberg stealing Hamilton’s thunder twice over in the last few days.
Social media is abuzz with suggestions that Fernando Alonso should leave Mclaren for Mercedes and Formula 1 should re-live the epic Hamilton-Alonso story that ended abruptly in 2007. Apart from Alonso, we discuss a string of other names only to add to Mercedes’ confusion.
Irrespective of everyone’s efforts, it’ll be Bernie Ecclestone’s efforts that will count the most to ensure that Mercedes hire a driver who can consistently challenge Hamilton in 2017.
