ROSBERG WANTS AN EXTREME E FUTURE FOR F1 CHAMPION VETTEL

Nico Rosberg, the team principal of RXR, sees Extreme E as a fitting next step for Sebastian Vettel as the Formula 1 veteran contemplates retirement from top-tier circuit racing. With his own successful transition from F1 driver to team manager, Rosberg believes Vettel’s passion for the environment aligns well with the ethos of Extreme E.

Rosberg has reached out to Vettel to gauge his interest in the series, emphasizing the environmental focus that XE champions. While Vettel hasn’t shown definitive interest yet, Rosberg believes it would be a logical move for him to explore.

As both Rosberg and Vettel share a commitment to environmental causes and are family-oriented, Rosberg highlights the balanced schedule of Extreme E, which allows for quality family time alongside competitive racing. Rosberg, content with his post-F1 roles, appreciates the manageable commitment of XE compared to the relentless demands of Formula 1.

While Rosberg remains focused on RXR’s success in Extreme E, he remains open to potential expansion into other sustainable motorsport ventures like Extreme H and E1 in the future. However, for now, his priority lies in continuing RXR’s dominance in the championship and nurturing its ongoing success.
