On this race weekend in 1986 Keke Rosberg completed his last race in F1. Does Nico know this? A win for his dad?
Keke Rosberg, Damon Hill and Jacques Villeneuve are perhaps the weakest drivers to ever win a championship.
In 1986 today it was the Australian GP at Adelaide, Prost won the race and his 2nd title. It was also the final F1 race for Keke Rosberg

James Hunt, Alain Prost, Keke Rosberg, Niki Lauda, Ayrton Senna and Denny Hulme Talk about Epic, 13 World championships between them is this the most epic thing ever? - Rob
in 1985, took victory in the South African GP at Kyalami. Keke Rosberg 2nd, so Williams 1-2
Not a bad Top 10 but I would have put Nigel Mansell 1st and Keke Rosberg 2nd moving all the rest down.
We just got a question on the quiz machine that was like, "What is the name of Keke Rosberg's son?" and I was like I'VE GOT THIS GUYS

Didier Pironi won the Dutch Grand Prix from Nelson Piquet and Keke Rosberg. (1982)
Keke Rosberg won here 30 years ago, so go for it Nico, but I wouldn't bet on ya tmrrw!
I remember going down to Brands Hatch to see Keke Rosberg testing that beast - it had a throttle like a light switch...
Every time I see an image of Keke Rosberg’s McLaren MP4/2C from Estoril ‘86 my brain sends out an error message 😳
Watching Boxing with And the world champs keke & Andy Brehme
In 1982 I remember Keke Rosberg interviewed on grid - was smoking, then thru the butt away. I reckon THAT would cause hysterics 2day lol!!!
The way it was, 1986 Canada GP, Montreal. Mr Keke Rosberg and Mclaren MP4/2C TAG Turbo V6.

Sky Sports F1 turns the clock back 30 years on May Bank Holiday weekend with highlights of the first five grands prix of the 1983 season.
Watching the 2006 Aus. GP. Murray Walker is commentating. I heard him say Keke Rosberg as retired.
Old Keke Rosberg would've struggled to keep up with me down 127
how about Nico and Keke Rosberg! It would be really interesting to see how such a relationship would work in 🏁🏁
Keke Rosberg has so much swag it's ridiculous. Definitely the coolest F1 driver in history.
Keke Rosberg is definitely the coolest F1 driver ever.
I remember when my country driver Keke Rosberg and Harri Toivonen once spoke of something 3.5 litre.
Was that the Senna one? I was wrong. It was Keke Rosberg WDC.
There are three things to do in F1, win your first motor race, win Monte Carlo & win the world championship - Keke Rosberg
And Keke Rosberg too. Nico Roberg is German because his mum and his license are German.
Damm ok guys if you Keke Rosberg as well as the others you are correct as well
Hi Everyone - here is advance notice of the press release about to go out to all motor sport publications. We would love as many as possible to come and join us at the BRDC Clubhouse on March 21st for the cheque presentation and lunch (£25pp). AGM to follow for members only. SIR FRANK WILLIAMS TO PRESENT £20,000 TO CHARITY ON BEHALF OF THE DOGHOUSE. Sir Frank Williams, Patron of Williams, one of the world’s most famous and successful Formula One Teams, will return to Silverstone circuit, the scene of Williams’ first and hundredth grand prix victory, on Thursday 21st March, as a special guest of the Women’s Motor Racing Associates Club (WMRAC), known affectionately as the Doghouse Owners’ Club.

The glittering event was attended by approximately 250 motor raci ...
Hey Danica fans and all too compliant media, see this picture? Well that's an awesome young female driver flanked by Bernd Schneider on one side & Keke Rosberg on the other. She was on the top step of the podium 15 years BM (Before Motegi) and 2 decades before just being kind of relevant was enough to garner global acclaim. It would be nice, somewhere within this renewed Danica media apocalypse, if people put find some perspective and context. Ellen Lohr was the real deal and she still is!
Top gear on dave and the Greatest Finnish f1 driver is about to come on top gear. Know who he is yet

me too, I thought I was being clever, though I did get Keke Rosberg!!
Keke Rosberg. Pointless answer in the final. Thank you, thank you very much.
I would have won 15 grand on pointless today. ALWAYS SAY KEKE ROSBERG. Duh.
Keke Rosberg - quickly becoming the Central African Republic of questions on
Watching Pointless here and I'm surprised at my pointless Formula 1 knowledge. I said Keke Rosberg! Give me the jackpot!
Well, apparently Keke Rosberg rescued me there. Thought Panis was a surefire pointless answer.
Keke Rosberg was pointless. Trulli and reueteman were pointless, the latter winning it 1980.
Just got a Pointless answer, winners of the Monaco F1 GP: Jody Sheckter.
Wahey, got a answer with Keke Rosberg.
Keke Rosberg and Clay Regazzoni for the sake of giving two other answers.

Nice pic of Merc driver Nico and his father Keke (F1 World Champion 1982) yesterday at testing in Barcelona
It'll be strange going home from testing and not spending 2/3 meal times with Keke Rosberg.

Last night's topgear with clarkson testing that Kia. Funny as *** Eric Clapton was quite impressed!! Funny!
"There is a fine line that separates commitment from risk. All drivers know about that line, just as they know the risks are there. The question is, where does judgement end and risk begin? What is normal racing and what is dangerous? Every driver feels that point to be an entirely different place." ~ Keke Rosberg, 1986.
Keke Rosberg,drove his Williams at an average of 160.938mph to claim pole in 1985,making Silverstone the world's fastest circuit at the time
Keke Rosberg had a *** of tasche, take lessons from this man.
Q18: Keke Rosberg. Q19: What was the first year that the Brazilian GP became the final race of the season?
If it's not Gilles Villeneuve then 1982 World Champion Keke Rosberg is my best guess!
DECEMBER 6: On this day in . Boxing promoter Don King turns 82 today. Keke Rosberg is 64. Jonathon King is 68. "Everybodys Gone to the Moon" Inventor Thomas Edison made history on this day in 1877 when he became the first person to record a human voice. He sung "Mary had a little lamb" into his phonograph and then replayed it to a stunned audience. That was in 1877. Mary had a little lamb Her father shot it dead Now she goes to school with it Between 2 lumps of Bread. On this day in 1969 the Rolling Stones played their tragic Altamont Speedway concert near San Francisco, where a fan got stabbed by the *** Angels, who the Stones had hired as body-guards. And later the stones exploited the whole thing when they used a video tape of the stabbing incident in one of their song videos. Musician Peter Buck (R.E.M.) is 56. Actress Janine Turner is 50. Musician Ulf "Buddha" Ekberg (Ace of Base) is 42. Paul Ellis 50.

Had that dream again about being stuck in a lift with Angela Merkel, Madeleine Albright and 1982 F1 world champion Keke Rosberg.
Oooh! My understanding of Finnish is limited to Nokia, Keke Rosberg, Mika Hakkinen and Kimi Raikkonen. :D
didn't Keke Rosberg win the championship without a victory 82 or 83??
first GP in Detroit was in 1982 won by John Watson in a McLaren-Ford. 1982 Driver Champion was Keke Rosberg in a Williams-Ford.

I should point out that Keke Rosberg did not kick my or any other dog to the best of my knowledge But he might have done if he'd met me
Well two drivers have won a WDC with only 1 win all season, Mike Hawthorn in 1958 and Keke Rosberg in 1982

By the way Bruno Senna is the nephew of the late Ayrton Senna. Nico Rosberg is the son of Keke Rosberg.
everbody loves Alonso...hes well Alonso :-) I must admit i was happy for Rosberg, Keke would be so proud!
Canada will be Nico's 115th grand prix start! Beating Keke Rosberg's (his dad) 114 grand prix starts!
Interesting bit of information; Monaco was Nico Rosberg's 114th race in F1. Keke Rosberg raced 114 races in his whole F1 career.
Nico Rosberg now has as many starts as father Keke - see how their results compare:
Keke Rosberg won only one race as well
Solid drive from Nico Rosberg here, all weekend. 2nd's not bad. His dad, Keke, won here, in 1983.
Nico Rosberg, son of F1 legend Keke Rosberg managed to clinch P2 on monaco GP.
Nico's dad, Keke Rosberg, won here in 1983. Is he watching his son tear around the tiny principality today?

Pop into Keke's for a cup of tea and ask how he felt becoming only F1 driver to see his son win an F1 race :)
There is one other Angry Birds level that I know of. It's in the original game, a level in honor of Keke Rosberg's championship.
I chose 83 as I love watching Keke Rosberg slide that williams around on slicks on the damp track. Awesome car control!
Hello Nico! I am Emerson's first wife and knew ur father Keke very well, he was a very good friend! Say hi from me pls!

1980 - but failed to make start as only fastest 20 of 27 got onto grid so joined the likes of Keke Rosberg and John Watson with a DNQ!
F1's a funny game though... Keke Rosberg had 6 points to his name before 1982!
Check out video of Keke Rosberg showing his hands at the end of Monaco 1983. Now THAT is nasty!
Superb drive from Maldonado to win his first race in only his second year in F1! Congratulations to Sir Frank Williams, a belated birthday gift. Williams have returned to its former glory. Excellent race from The Spanish Donkey. The upgrades are indeed an improvement on The Prancing Horse which puts Alonso on equal points with Vettel in the Championship after 5 races. Great results from The Iceman and Renault. Second podium places Raikkonen 4th in the Drivers' and Renault 3rd in the Constructors' Championship. 5 different winners in 5 races. It's really an exciting and unpredictable season ever! Next stop the crown jewel of F1, Monaco! 2012 F1 Spanish GP Race results: 1st Pastor Maldonado 2nd Fernando Alonso 3rd Kimi Raikkonen 8th Lewis Hamilton Enjoy the video on the rich history of the Williams F1 team; 9 Constructors' and 7 Drivers' Championships.

The last time F1 saw 5 different winners in the first 5 races was 1983 (Nelson Piquet/John Watson/Alain Prost/Patrick Tambay/Keke Rosberg).

"...Gilles was a giant of a driver, yes, but he was also a great man." -Keke Rosberg
"If someone said to me that you can have three wishes, my first would have been to get into racing, my second to be in Formula 1, my third to drive for Ferrari" Gilles Villeneuve (1950 - 1982)
„Gilles was abnormally brave. (...) , he was the hardest *** I ever knew, but absolutely fair. He was a giant of a driver.“ Keke Rosberg

Ross Brawn worked with Keke Rosberg and now with Nico Rosberg
Nico's dad, Keke Rosberg, was often seen smoking a cigarette after his races. Nico himself has "never touched a cigarette".
For all you formula 1 racing fans I have great news. Nico Rosberg, son of F1 great Keke Rosberg won his first race at at the China Gp. Driving a factory Mercedes he went from pole to checker. First time a factory Mercedes won since 1955 with the great Juan Manuel Fangio. Great race. Really looking forward to the return of F1 to U.S. in Austin Texas.
Mercedes Driver Nico Rosberg is the son of former World Champion Keke Rosberg. But
Finnish racing driver Keke Rosberg was born on December 6, 1948.
I don't think so, although Mike Hawthorn and Keke Rosberg have both won the title with only 1 win in the season.
