While Nico Rosberg is retired from racing in Formula 1, he hasn't journeyed far from the track. This video of him shot from inside a McLaren Senna is a good indicator of how quick the 2016 world champion still is.

Rosberg uploaded this clip to earlier in the week, showing him pushing the 789-horsepower McLaren to the limit on a section of the Paul Ricard circuit in the South of France. Despite the car being worth over $1 million, he doesn't hold anything back, slamming curbs and jamming the steering wheel from one side to the other while trying to set a lap time.
