Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg will appear at the City Racing event in Rotterdam on August 26, it has been announced.

Rosberg, who took his maiden F1 win in China last weekend, last attended the show in 2006, when he was with Williams.

"I'm looking forward to returning to Rotterdam and entertaining all of the spectators, and I am happy that Allianz will make this possible with their Drive Safely programme," Rosberg said.

"I drove the circuit there in 2006 so I already know what the possibilities are and this will benefit the show."

Mercedes meanwhile attended the City Racing event in Rotterdam for the first time last year, with test and development driver, Sam Bird. Ferrari also appeared in 2011 with Marc Gene.

"Immediately after the edition in 2011 we had positive talks with Allianz and Mercedes and we are very proud that the team will be sending Nico Rosberg to our event [this year]," said organiser Herman Vaanholt.

"We know Nico from 2006 and saw a passionate and an enthusiastic driver giving a great demonstration in Rotterdam. Thanks to Allianz, the national and international motorsport fans can once again enjoy the silver Mercedes AMG Petronas car."
