Royal Citytour: Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team Driver and three-time winner of the Monaco Grand Prix Nico Rosberg had the honour to drive Prince Albert through the streets of Monaco. Driving in Nico’s dream car, the iconic Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing from 1955, the pair talked about the tradition of the Monaco Grand Prix, their passion for cars and how their lives have changed with fatherhood.
To celebrate this year’s Monaco Grand Prix, Nico Rosberg drove Prince Albert II for a royal city tour in a 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing. We bet the F1 championship leader would not mind meeting Prince Albert again after Sunday’s race to collect the winner’s trophy for a fourth consecutive time.
