The Mercedes-AMG driver starting this season, Valtteri Bottas, was a guest at the PETRONAS lab. But unlike any guest, he turned out to be loud and runnnig around. The Villastellone plant testing area become a race track for a day, once the Fin got his hands on the Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe.
The employees of the company got the chance to be amateur co-drivers for the new Iceman of Formula 1, who burned the rubber and made the two-door performance car screech on the tarmac, soon covering everyone there in smoke.
“An amazing experience, pure adrenline”, summed up the event in Italy, at the PETRONAS new research center, those who got in the passenger’s seat, next to 27-year old pro-driver.
Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Formula 1 Team proudly stands on the first spot of the ranking and has just landed in Baku, Azerbaijan, for Sunday’s race. The Fin driver is in the 3rd spot following Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel and team-mate Lewis Hamilton.
