It looks as though Nico Rosberg will stay with Mercedes as a team ambassador.

The German shocked the Formula One world just five days after winning his first world championship when he announced his immediate retirement from the sport.

Rosberg was spotted on social media apparently refuelling a Ferrari 'LaFerrari' supercar, bringing allegations that he was going to ditch the Mercedes brand altogether.

But Rosberg explained to Germany's Auto Bild: "That is me (in the photo), but unfortunately the car belongs to a buddy who was paying for fuel."

Sport Bild reports that Rosberg is likely to remain a Mercedes brand ambassador in 2017, when he will officially be the sport's reigning world champion.
