The Championship didn’t come easily, however. The 2016 season featured a constant battle between Nico and his teammate Lewis Hamilton, who had won the title the previous year. Following in the footsteps of his racing driver father, Keke, who was also a World Champion, Nico had his sights set on the title.
With Hamilton leading the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Rosberg needed to finish third or above to grasp the title. Despite a surge of speed from Sebastian Vettel, Rosberg managed to hold off his fellow German to clinch second place and in return the Championship he'd longed for.
The 2016 season was also significant as it marked Nico’s final season in the sport, with the driver choosing to hang up his race gloves following his Championship win, claiming: "I have climbed my mountain, I am on the peak, so this feels right.”
This helmet replicates the helmet the Champion wore during the 2016 season, featuring the chosen designs and sponsorship branding, as well as his name on the side. The perfect collector’s piece, this helmet is one to really show off.
