Why don't you like him? He seems somewhat likeable.

I was never a fan but I didn't really mind him when he was a driver. Until he retired "to spend time away with his family" only to return as a "vlogger" and a "podcaster" on youtube and whatnot and spout shite to the media or anyone else who'd listen to him in order to stay relevant. The thing is, his videos and stuff are all mostly clickbait that is pretty much at the level of yellow press and tabloids; you'd expect a bit more technical insight from someone with his experience and connections yet all he talks about is either generic stuff anyone could say or just pure celebrity-gossip like nonsense. Also he always talks over people and steers the conversation into talking about himself... I remember watching his podcast with Toto Wolff (because I like him) and it's also unbelievable how Rosberg managed to make everything about himself whenever it was possible and was blowing his own horn on every occasion xD Also likes to shit on people everytime and changes his opinion whenever it suits him. An annoying spineless tit; a typical example of modern day "journalism".

This commercial ran for awhile here, so outside of Lewis Hamilton, he was the first driver who's name I ever knew.

I liked Nico during his driving career, and he always seemed down to earth and ready for a bit of banter. But I could have never imagined that he becomes a clickbait youtuber with cringeworthy thumbnails and talks about everyone and everything just for attention.

 

Good times:

God, it was so good. You'd never see stuff like that from Valtteri.

Pretty much my feelings towards him as well.

"Verstappen hits back at Rosberg"

- I don't give a damn what he says on his channels anyway. I think he's the new Jacques Villeneuve. Villeneuve has changed quite a bit by now, but it seems as if Rosberg is now always trying to express a contrary opinion. Maybe he wants to attract viewers or something? He does it a lot. At the beginning of this year he called me a narcissist. That's very extreme

- He's got no charisma, and he doesn't get to work anywhere. That is also his problem. Maybe he wants to make money with his Youtube channel. But he would have been better off driving on, then he could have made a lot more money.

 

Holy moly, he ripped Nico a new one :D Let it all out, Max! xD

I remember last season or the season before. Nico used to make cameo appearances during the season now and then. This was before he had his current channel. When he made these cameo appearances he was really good. He gave all the answers to the technical questions and you actually learnt more from his responses. I think now with his channel he has to be a bit controversial in order to attract viewers.

Rosberg is actually a half decent pundit I think. I always like it when newly retired sportsmen/women go straight to punditry. As they’re still raw and fresh from their experiences and who better to share their knowledge?! And it works when they’re alongside experienced media trained professionals... it’s a good balance. 
 

However, it’s so clear that the whole retirement to spend time with my family was a load of crap. He was just mentally fucked after what he achieved. He’s a world Champion and it’s in the record books but he would have never been the same again, mentally but also motivation. Some people once they achieve their goal that’s it. That’s what separates the good(Button/Rosberg) from the all time greats. (Hamilton/Schumacher). That’s why it’s been frustrating to see Alonso in the position he’s been in for so many years as he’s in the latter category. Where reaching the pinnacle once or twice isn’t enough.
