MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team driver Nico Rosberg takes up the challenge and goes head-to-head with two-time Major winner and Mercedes-Benz Golf brand ambassador Martin Kaymer as they test their sporting skills and strive for the perfect drive in a series of exclusive challenges on the golf course and the race track.
In the first challenge fans see Nico and Martin set fastest lap times in the Mercedes-AMG GT S at Mercedes-Benz World UK, before attention turns to the golf course for challenge two - a nearest to the pin contest. The third challenge in the series is a lap against the clock in the F1 Simulator with Nico and Martin battling it out on the iconic Silverstone track. Then it goes back to the golf course for a putting show-down in the fourth challenge. Should scores be level after the four challenges, a special golf and driving combination test has been devised to decide who will be crowned the winner.
“It was great to see Nico’s abilities on the golf course and I hope I wasn’t that bad on the race track either”, said Martin Kaymer with a smile and Nico Rosberg added: “It was a lot of fun doing these challenges with Martin. As sportsmen we both love to compete. And to win, of course.”
The two Mercedes-Benz stars will need to demonstrate skill, precision and a passion for perfection to overcome their opponent. The runner up will donate some of his own signed merchandise to the winner’s online fans.
The first challenge is released today, with the remaining films in the series being launched across Mercedes-Benz Social Media channels over the upcoming weeks.
