Formula 1 world champion Nico Rosberg, who had announced his retirement at the end of last season, confessed that he lost the drivers’ championship trophy before his recent visit to the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Rosberg was present at the Festival of Speed with Mercedes earlier this month to demonstrate one of the team’s cars and also sent the trophy to the event.

The former German driver said the trophy got lost for five days during its delivery. Eventually, however, it was safely returned to his possession.

“I’ve had a massive scare because we sent it (the drivers’ trophy) off to Goodwood recently – with super-high security – and it got lost,” he said.

“It was gone for five days.

“It was lost in the post!

“I had some restless days, but now it’s back.”
