The “Nico Rosberg, Martin Kaymer & The Perfect Drive” competition kicked off this week at the Mercedes-Benz World UK where the sportsmen vied to set the fastest lap times driving a Mercedes-AMG GT S. Martin, perhaps somewhat unexpectedly, clocked the fastest time, and attention now turns to the golf course for the second challenge, a closest to the pin contest.

The third challenge in the series puts the men in an F1 Simulator to lap against the clock on the iconic Silverstone track. The competition then moves back to the golf course for a putting show down in the fourth challenge. If scores are even after the four challenges, Mercedes-Benz has devised a special golf and driving combination tie-breaker test to determine who will be crowned winner.

Results of the first challenge were released this week in the video that you can view above, while the remaining challenges will be released in video on Mercedes-Benz social media channels over the coming weeks.
