Mercedes LogoFull throttle through the tunnel, almost brushing the barriers and of course that inimitable atmosphere: the Monaco Grand Prix is the jewel in the crown of the Formula One calendar.

MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS driver Lewis Hamilton demonstrates just what it takes to post a quick lap around the streets of the Principality in the team’s driver-in-the-loop simulator:

“Driving round the Monte Carlo circuit is a seriously hair-raising experience: it’s like the most hardcore rollercoaster you can possibly imagine!”

 

Nico Rosberg’s Monaco Grand Prix preview video can also be viewed on the team’s YouTube channel, in which he discusses just how special this home race is to him:

“The school bus used to take us through the tunnel each day but now I’m roaring along the same road in a 300 km/h Formula One car. That’s quite a special feeling!”
