Even Formula 1 World Champions are not immune to giving their opinions on the best drivers across a season.

And with a camera man so handily in tow, that is exactly what Nico Rosberg has done while driving around his home streets of Monaco - where he won three years on the trot between 2013 and 2015.

The 2016 champion admitted his top choice was rather simple as Max Verstappen crushed all before him, winning 15 times from 22 Grands Prix - plus two of the three sprints.

Rosberg - who became just the second teammate after Jenson Button to out-score Lewis Hamilton across a season in sealing his title - also has high praise for the third member of that club in George Russell.

You can watch the German's choices and reasoning in the video below.
