About Nico Rosberg
As for the day, Nico Rosberg net worth is estimated at $43 million dollars, so he definitely is not the richest race driver in the world. For example Michael Schumacher, who has won the world championship 7 times, has some $780 million in his account. According to Bankrate, this sum constitutes more than 40% of the combined net worth of all the Formula One drivers in top ten list. Fernando Alonso, who occupies a second place in the list, has a net worth of $220 million and Kimi Raikkonen has $180 million. However, soon Nico Rosberg net worth might actually be huge enough for him to enter the ranks of the richest Formula One drivers. After all, Rosberg is still pretty young: he is currently 30 years old. The racer had his first win in 2012 and by 2014 his position in the world rankings was 2014. So Nico is currently living some of the best years of his career. It was estimated that his annual salary already amounts to $17 million and it is expected to rise! Knowing this, it does not seem unlikely that a decade from now Nico will be one of the wealthiest Formula One drivers in the world! But how did he ascend to stardom?
Like so many of his colleagues, professional racing drivers, Nico started training at an early age behind the wheel of the kart. This was mostly due to the influence of his father, who was also an accomplished race driver, Formula One world champion. Keke Rosberg, Nico’s father, was Finnish, meanwhile his mother originated from Germany. Hence the millionaire has a dual Finish and German citizenship. In the earlier stages of his career Nico was competing for both of these countries (at different points in time, of course), however, recently he has been driving under the flag of Germany only.
Nico Rosberg net worth started to grow in 2002, as he moved to German Formula BMW. His salary increased in 2006, as he was officially confirmed Williams driver. Four years later the racer joined Mercedes GP Petronas F1 Team. As for the last four years, Nico belongs to Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team. Throughout this time, his position in the rankings has been increasing almost non-stop. In 2006 Nico was 17th, by 2008 he reached No. 13 and the following year jumped to the 7th spot. Nico Rosberg net worth has been growing in accordance with his achievements. During the last two years the racer has been occupying the 2nd position. The beginning of the recent stream of victories coincided with his wedding. In 2014 the millionaire married his childhood friend and log-term girlfriend Vivian Sibold.
