It was a crazy racing weekend in Miami, where Columbian racer Juan Pablo Montoya won the Race of the Champions. Although invited, the Formula 1 World Champion Nico Rosberg failed to show up, as he had already announced his retirement. A Mercedes protégé, Pascal Wehrelin, was though in the spotlight.
Young German driver Pascal Whehrelin, who as inches away from snatching a seat in the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS racing car for the upcoming season was the center of attention at Marlins Park. He crashed soon after the finish line and his car flipped over, but luckily, him and his passenger walked away unharmed.
Juan Pablo Montoya, who is racing in Indianapolis 500 in 2017, defeated the Le Mans 24-hour race legend Tom Kristensen in the final stage. Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel and Williams Racing’s retired and returned Felipe Massa, but also former F1 driver David Coulthard, lost along the way.
