Now anyone can be a race driver!
Mercedes Formula 1 has placed a hilarious advertisement in UK’s Autosport magazine, calling for a new “race driver”. This is in the wake of F1 champion Nico Rosberg resigning from his Mercedes team.
FOR REAL?? No, sorry, it’s a hoax.
“A vacancy has arisen for the position of race driver with the team.” the notice reads.
“Ideally, you will have a proven track record in skills including steering, braking and, in particular, accelerating. Possession of an FIA Super Licence will be an advantage.”
The also listing says that applicants with an FIA Super Licence will have an advantage. Mercedes will offer a generous bonus, life assurance, Mercedes company car lease scheme, on-site gym and subsidised restaurant facilities for the successful applicant.
Nico Rosberg stunned the world of motorsports when he announced his retirement right after lifting the trophy as world champion. Mercedes has been on the lookout for someone to step into his shoes, but it seems they have not had any luck yet.
We’re thinking this ad is probably a hint for someone…. *cough*Verstappen*cough*Wehrlein*
