Nico Rosberg arrived at the Festival of Speed today (Sunday) – to a rousing chorus of happy birthday from the Goodwood crowds.
And at the end of it there was a surprise present for the Mercedes Formula 1 front-runner – in the shape of a shapely blond with a bottle of something bubbly to mark the occasion of his 30th birthday.
Who could it be? You’ll have to watch the video…
Nico, currently lying second in the drivers’ championship going into next weekend’s British Grand Prix, was guest in the Mercedes-AMG pavilion at FoS, where a packed audience was eager to ask him questions.
They ranged from which football team does he support, to what gifts he received for his birthday (apparently a nice lunch out with friends in Monaco and some baby clothes).
After the Q&A session with Nico the pavilion quickly emptied again as everyone made their way to the hillclimb, eager to see the F1 star blast the 2013 Mercedes W04 up the hill.
