“I think there’s more to come, more of a chal­lenge. There’s harder times ahead and I like that, I love that. That’s chal­leng­ing and it would be so bor­ing with­out it.”

Ros­berg an­nounced last De­cem­ber, days af­ter se­cur­ing his first ti­tle, that he was re­tir­ing af­ter a ca­reer spent bat­tling Hamil­ton.

The Ger­man, a fam­ily man, made clear he had been drained by the 2016 cam­paign and was not pre­pared to ex­pend the same amount of phys­i­cal and men­tal en­ergy to de­fend a ti­tle that had been so hard to win.

Hamil­ton, who is ex­pected to agree a con­tract ex­ten­sion soon, said the fact that Vet­tel had signed for three more years with Fer­rari, keep­ing him there un­til 2020, was also a source of mo­ti­va­tion.

“I’m like: ‘Fer­rari are not go­ing to like me for the next cou­ple of years’,” he said.

“But it’s OK be­cause we are go­ing to make it as hard as it can pos­si­bly be for them to win cham­pi­onships. I re­ally am look­ing for­ward to that bat­tle with them.”
