Schumacher, Rosberg Hit The Nürburgring In F1, AMG Cars: Video

Follow Nelson

As promised, F1 legend Michael Schumacher and current Mercedes AMG F1 driver Nico Rosberg have hit the Nurburgring in F1 and AMG cars.

This video captures the screaming of Schumacher piloting the 2011-spec W02 Mercedes Silver Arrow F1 car as it flirts with a small herd of AMG cars. Oh, and there are a handful of SLS AMGs involved, too.

The first vehicle to head off the line was an A45 AMG driven by current F1 Safety Car driver Bernd Mayländer. He was followed by DTM driver Karl Wendlinger in the new E63 AMG S-Model, who in turn was followed by Rosberg in an SLS AMG Black Series. Behind them was DTM champion Bernd Schneider in an SLS AMG GT3 race car, and then finally Schumacher in the W02.

Unfortunately, the exhibition lap apparently didn't turn into the all-out assault on the 'Ring's lap record we had hoped for from Schumacher.

Still, it's well worth the run time, especially from 1:18 to 3:30. There's even a nice F1 powerslide at 1:44. Enjoy.

Below is a quick rundown of the vehicles and their drivers:


A45 AMG (355 hp, 0-62 mph in  4.6secs), Driver: Bernd Mayländer
E63 AMG S-Model
(577 hp, 0-62 mph 3.6secs), Driver: Karl Wendlinger
SLS AMG Black Series (631 hp, 0-62 mph 3.6secs), Driver: Nico Rosberg
SLS AMG GT3
(more than 500 hp), Driver: Bernd Schneider
MERCEDES AMG W02
(750 hp, 0-62 mph 2.7secs), Driver: Michael Schumacher
