Nico Rosberg, F1 world champion and retired at the end of the 2016 season, is now a real YouTuber. At the invitation of Volkswagen, the 35-year-old German took to the track at the Nurburgring, in the idle hours of the Eifel GP weekend, to test the ID.R.
The electric prototype with which the Wolfsburg house sponsors its “mission” for cleaner mobility impressed the ex of Mercedes and Williams, who was particularly impressed, so much so as to define it as an “electric missile”.
Before the test, a friendly chat with Romain Dumas, Volkswagen factory driver and development delegate for the ID.R, with which the Frenchman has set various records. We remember the record at Goodwood, as well as the feat at Pikes Peak and, finally, the ride to the Nordschleife.
In the hands of a former world champion, Volkswagen has hit the target. A prototype car destined for marketing and making people talk about itself has now ended up in all the magazines …
Volkswagen Motorsport also announced its official participation in the Goodwood SpeedWeek 2020 where he will try to further lower the previous record obtained on the English asphalt strip.
On this occasion, ID.R debuts with a new livery inspired by the design of the production models of the ID range.
