This is a fun video with Mercedes F1 driver Nico Rosberg showing Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero how much faster a real racing car is than a high performance sportscar.
It’s part of a series by Puma, which brings sports people from different disciplines into contact with F1 and motorsport. It all helps to spread the word about our sport.
What works well here is that Aguero is very cocky when it comes to driving the road car, texting on his phone while Rosberg is trying to show him the lines around a rather damp Donington – to the extent that Rosberg throws his phone out of the window.
But it’s clear when they get into a proper DTM car, that Aguero is blown away by the speed and cornering forces. Anyone who’s ever been in a proper racing car will know the feeling. I once went in a two seater F1 Minardi in anger with Fernando Alonso around Donington and it felt like the world was about to end.
It’s worth a watch for the humour.
