Formula 1 Champ Nico Rosberg Offers to Drive Tesla Model S Around Nürburgring

With last week’s announcement that the new Porsche Taycan had set a record at Nürburgring, Tesla CEO Elon Musk was quick to react, stating on Twitter that a Tesla Model S would be at Nürburgring next week.

Once word got out, 2016 Formula 1 Champion driver Nico Rosberg said he wanted to help set a lap record by offering his driving services to Musk, who quickly accepted.

In typical Musk fashion, this might be a little premature, as the famous race track has said there’s no available slots for Tesla to attempt to set a record. Maybe Tesla booked a time under another name, or maybe even purchased someone else’s track time? Only time will tell.
