“It was an enjoyable and special event for me. It is not often one gets to drive so fast on the roof of a parking lot. I tried to drive as fast as I could while at the same time keeping it fun and safe for the participants in the car. I hope they enjoyed it as much as I did,” said Nico.
In total twelve lucky PETRONAS customers and six Malaysian media members experienced the drive of their lives with the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS F1 Team driver.
