Nico Rosberg has recently announced his retirement to the shock and awe of the Formula 1 world after winning the Formula 1 World Championship, but that doesn’t mean he’s going to just stop working. In this video he’s seen working for the man, Mercedes-Benz, in a “Win A Day With Nico Rosberg” event meeting all of his fans from around the world. Afterwards he took several passengers in a Mercedes Benz GLE250d SUV through a pretty grueling off-road course, featuring very steep and muddy climbs.
The vehicles were capable of making the climbs (otherwise, why in the world would Mercedes-Benz capture any footage at all?) however the video editing also showed the F1 World Champion incapable of driving up steep hills and the SUV easily losing grip in this treacherous course. Is this a way to sell cars, Mercedes?
