In front of the German Fabulous Prix prior in the month, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg drove two noteworthy Fantastic Prix autos around the old Nordschleife. Hamilton drove the 1938 Mercedes W154 initially kept an eye on by Rudof Caracciola, the driver for whom the Green Damnation's famous "Karussell" turn was named.
Mercedes was sufficiently thoughtful to stick a GoPro in favor of Lewis' protective cap, and we get the opportunity to ride locally available and wonder what it probably been similar to race this auto with its unimaginably thin tires and 475 hp supercharged 3.0-liter V12, hindered just by drum brakes, and with 111 gallons of very strong methanol fuel.

Did I specify the H design in the gearbox is switched, the brake pedal is on the privilege, and the gas in the center? As Hamilton notice, "There is a genuine probability of hitting the wrong pedal here!"
Nico Rosberg was in the other auto, which simply happens to be a 1954 W196 like the one now holding the record as the most costly auto ever sold at closeout, when it changed hands for near $30 million a week ago.
Energetic hybrids are odd things. Despite the fact that a great many people have now relinquished the affectation that these machines will ever go rough terrain, regardless it appears to be enigmatically unnatural for something so high off of the ground to be going quick, particularly around corners. So if the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Car (which is not a roadster by any means, it's a four-entryway hybrid) was fabricated by whatever other organization, that organization may battle to persuade anybody to consider it energetic. In any case, Mercedes-Benz does not have this issue, on the grounds that Mercedes-Benz can simply call Lewis Hamilton.
The supreme Equation 1 best on the planet won the last season in the driver's seat of a Mercedes, and now he's in a commercial, letting us know that the GLE Roadster is sufficiently lively to fulfill even his unnaturally exclusive expectations for energy. This is presumably somewhat of a stretch, however it's a long way from being the most foolish case to have ever been made in a promotion, and Hamilton's driving (accepting that it is Hamilton driving, yet it would be really odd in the event that it wasn't) benefits work of flaunting how well the auto can deal with when pushed.

The enlistment of the 2008 title holder denote the begin of another section for the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Equation One Group.
