Nico Rosberg is a big believer in Formula E, but could the 2017 F1 world champion get involved with the all-electric series sometime in the future?

Speaking to the DPA news agency in Suttgart this week, Rosberg said his F1 career was "definitely over" but is keeping an eye open for opportunities elsewhere in the motorsport arena.

"Now I'm in a great situation in my life -- it's like a discovery phase," said the German.

"Racing will always be fun to me, so let's see what happens. I will always be passionate about our sport and there will always be options to be involved.

"It does not have to be tomorrow, it could be in ten years, but I will be open to all possibilities."

Rosberg is rumored to be interested in a managerial role with Mercedes, centered around the manufacturer's future Formula E endeavor.

While he wouldn't confirm any possible involvement, the series itself and its technology certainly has his full attention.

"This is the future of the world and it will be exciting to see when all those manufacturers put their cards on the table," said the German, referring to the prospect of Mercedes taking on other carmakers including Audi, BMW and others.

"It will change our world completely," he added, referring to the role of technology in the automotive world.

"We'll have cars that drive themselves and not just in 20 years -- it's just around the corner.

"I'm very interested in how our lives will be simplified by that," he added.
