Vienna: Nico Rosberg received his Formula One world championship trophy on Friday, just hours after he announced he was quitting the sport. The 31-year-old paid tribute to Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton as well as his father Keke Rosberg who won the F1 title back in 1982. "When I saw this trophy for the first time today, I immediately went and found where my dad's name was on it," the German said. Dutch driver Max Verstappen won the award for FIA Personality of the Year and FIA Action of the Year. The world rally championship trophy was presented for the fourth successive time to Sebastien Ogier and co-driver Julien Ingrassia.
