Formula One world champion Nico Rosberg has taken up an ambassadorial role with the Mercedes PETRONAS F1 Team.

Rosberg announced his retirement from Formula One last month. Mercedes confirmed on Monday that Valtteri Bottas will replace Rosberg at the outfit as Lewis Hamilton’s team mate for this season.

Rosberg will join both Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton at the sponsor event in Geneva on Tuesday. A statement from the Mercedes AMG PETRONAS F1 Team on Monday stated:

As Valtteri now begins a busy week of technical and physical preparations for the new season, Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport is pleased to confirm that Nico has accepted an ambassadorial role with the team for 2017.

His first commitment will be tomorrow, in Geneva, alongside former team-mate Lewis Hamilton at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) on behalf of team partner IWC Schaffhausen.
