#nico rosberg #art #fanart #jb and nico
It started as a solemn sketch of Nico but I kept stress-adding things in around it. Just that kind of mood since Suzuka. The partner-in-crime and I have talked about little else, but I don’t feel qualified to speak much of it online. I really appreciated Nico speaking of the people closer to Jules than he, who suffer beyond his own feelings - and he probably already has a better average than most. Likewise, I read on it endlessly (and am endlessly angered by the ludicrous misinformation, blind optimism, and cavalier pessimism) but feel for those who feel it so much deeper.
The relevant half of Nico’s column is well worth the read, with thoughtful words about Jules and his friends (rather than autobiographical justifications, or kneejerk accusations). For us, F1 was our respite from the spectre of death in personal life; I think on every loss we’ve seen in the sport for twenty years and pray this is not one.

Nico Rosberg trying hard to not cry… =( - Japanese GP ‘14
Watching him after the race was surreal and heartbreaking, the way he went over to the FIA official for more information on the accident, then went over to Lewis to catch him up on that. There was a point afterwards where he found himself the only person left in the podium room, and he quickly wandered out, as if not wanting to be alone, returning only when others did.
(It feels like we are neighbours in an apartment block, forced out at 2am by the smoke alarm to the sight of an ambulance, secretive. We pad around in our slippers, speaking in half-whispers, fearful, hearts in our throats. Dear God. Praying for the best.)

#thanks to the two of you who signal boosted this!
PADDOCKPRINCESS NEEDS YOUR HELP: There were over 20 photos in Nico’s Hugo Boss Behind the Scenes album on Facebook, but most of them were suddenly deleted, leaving only 1 new photo and the other 5 already available through Mercedes. DOES ANYBODY HAVE THE DELETED PHOTOS (or know someone who might)?
UPDATE: With Octeto’s and rosbergs’ posts, 13 of the 16 deleted photos now exist on the internet again. The thumbnails of the three missing photos can be seen in nicorosbergunofficial’s post here: middle photo of row 2, first photo of row 3, middle photo of row 4. If anybody is in possession of or has seen these photos (or has hi-res versions of the rest), do drop us a note!

DOES ANYBODY HAVE THE DELETED PHOTOS (or know someone who might)? We didn’t get to save them in time and this is eine katastrophe. Some of the deleted photos can be seen at nommii-vanquish (x) and sebastianvette1 (x) - if anybody has the rest (or the original hi-res files from Facebook of the ones on Tumblr) of the missing photos, please drop us a note. PLEASE I’M BEGGING YOU.
This faux Hugo Boss ad is something I threw together very quickly earlier on. The very first time I drew Nico was in a suit for a secret agent AU, so it was hard to resist despite my lack of time. The guy in the background is so mysterious it’s almost like he wasn’t reffed wholesale off the photo in this post aegirs compiled that so handily demonstrates why there must be a perfect alternate dimension where JB and Nico got to be teammates shilling suits.

Nico Rosberg looking hot in a Hugo Boss suit.
HI I see you’ve posted some of the deleted pics from Nico’s Hugo Boss Facebook album! I know there used to be over 20 photos but most of them were suddenly deleted from Facebook, leaving only six, and we didn’t get the rest in time. Might you have the rest of the photos? I’m sorry I’m asking about this out of nowhere, but I’m pretty desperate and would really really love to get my hands on them. Thank you so much!
