Soccer players kick the ball and score. Or head it home. Simple as that. But how do Formula 1 drivers score goals? Well, they send the ball straight into the net with their car! The world championship’s leader, Nico Rosberg, did just that.
It was not just holiday while waiting for the Hungarian Grand Prix for Nico Rosberg. Beside his sunbathing in Ibiza, the pro driver starred in a video promoting the return of the Hockenheim racetrack in the Formula 1 calendar.
With Germany leaving Euro 2016 as early as the semi-finals, after the titans’ clash with the home country, France, the Germans of the Formula 1 grand show tried to compensate the disillusion. So Nico Rosberg of Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS, Nico Hulkenberg of Force India and Pascal Wehrlein of Manor took the Mercedes-AMG GT S for a spin, but not just for the sake of fun, but for scoring goals.
Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS was kind enough to provide viewers with a tutorial. Yet, please, don’t try that at home:
STEP 1: Grab a football
STEP 2: Fire up a Mercedes-AMG beast
STEP 3: Gather 3x F1 drivers
STEP 4: Well… watch and see!
P.S.: Look out for the Pascal “Ronaldo” Wehrlein’a celebration…
It seems that the three would anytime fill in for Bernd Maylander, the ever-lasting Formula 1 Safety Car driver, since the car they drifted with was one other than the 510-horspower GT S exactly like the one that the super driver has in command on the racetrack.
But before we head to Hockenheim, stay tuned to find out everything about the upcoming race, the Hungarian Grand Prix!
