Schumacher pilots F1 car at the Nurburgring

Schumacher at the Nurburgring
As part of the program for last weekend’s 24-hour race at the Nurburgring, Mercedes-Benz put on a special event highlighting the difference in performance between a Formula 1 car, an SLS AMG GT3 and a selection of the company’s AMG road cars.

First out on the 20.832 kilometre track was Bernd Maylander in an A 45 AMG driven, followed by the E 63 AMG S of Karl Wendlinger, Nico Rosberg in the SLS AMG Black Series, and Bernd Schneider piloting an SLS AMG GT3.

Finally, it was the turn of seven-time Formula One World Champion Michael Schumacher to reel them in his 750 bhp Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 W02 – which hits 100 mph in 2.7 seconds.

Notably, the last time a Silver Arrow graced the Nordschleife was in 1954 with a certain Juan Manuel Fangio behind the wheel. Judging by the quality of this film, we’re guessing they’ve used a camera from that era for nostalgic reasons.
