It looks like Elon Musk will have a "decent driver" like the Tesla Model S pilots on the Nürburgring, but that's if the billionaire's words are true in the days to come.
Last week, Musk tweeted that Tesla is bringing the Model S to the green hell – presumably trying to take on the existing challenge that the recently launched Porsche Taycan has put on the dreaded racetrack. Retired Mercedes Formula 1 cyclist Nico Rosberg responded to his tweet and offered to be the one to bypass Model S.
Musk, of course, accepted. Here's the whole Twitter exchange.
Rosberg went on to ask if Musk will be at the Frankfurt Motor Show this week, which Musk has not yet answered. Whether the two have already spoken to each other via instant messaging is beyond us.
Rosberg's admiration for green cars is not a secret. The Formula One champion 2016 has invested in Formula E racing. His personal lifestyle also points to promoting a sustainable future. With this in mind, it's no wonder Rosberg is interested in working with Musk to make the Model S an incredible lap time.
However, there is only one problem. A recent report from Road & Track revealed that Tesla has not informed Nürburgring officials of an exclusive lane time. Whether or not Musk will push through with his & # 39; Ring-chasing venture & # 39;, we have to wait and see if Rosberg and Musk tandem will be able to pull any strings.
If Rosberg is going to be behind the wheel of the Model S, we certainly hope it's going to be an exclusive hot lap – not the speculation that Tesla will do anything else like the most number of laps in a # single charge.
