The lads in Austria

Hockenheim, Medien-Tag 2016 Hockenheim, Medien-Tag 2016

 

Over the past 90 years, the German Grand Prix has seen a lot of action, excitement and surprises.

Nico Rosberg, Nico Hülkenberg and Pascal Wehrlein have enjoyed quite a few of them, either in the cockpit or as a fan watching on TV or from the stands. In the context of the official media day, they have now experienced that history first hand for themselves – at the wheel of three legendary Formula 1 cars.

Rosberg was invited to drive the McLaren Mercedes in which his childhood idol Mika Häkkinen won the world championship. Hülkenberg took a seat in a historic W 25 Silver Arrow, while Wehrlein was allocated the world championship-winning car of 1954/55 – the famous W 196.

For Rosberg, the outing in Häkkinen’s car was a way of celebrating his 31st birthday the day before. Wehrlein, himself a big fan of the ‘Flying Finn’ sensed an opportunity: “Hmm, I have a birthday coming up soon…”
