Reigning world champion Nico Rosberg will join the Sky F1 pundit team next weekend in Suzuka for the Japanese Grand Prix.

Alongside Martin Brundle, Damon Hill, Johnny Herbert and Anthony Davidson, Rosberg will offer his unique insight and expertise to Sky viewers for both qualifying and the race.

The German driver won in Japan last year, in his championship season, at the challenging Suzuka venue.

"I am thrilled to confirm I will be joining the Sky F1 team this weekend in Japan," Rosberg said.

"Since my retirement last year I have only attended a few Grands Prix so I am pleased to return to the fold.

"In 2016 I had a great win at this track, so I am looking forward to share my insights and memories of Suzuka.

"I love this race track and the fans are also amazing. It will be great to have the opportunity to thank the Japanese fans for their wonderful support over the years."
