Nico Rosberg tests with CRG

The 2015 Formula 1 Vice World Champion headed to Adria Raceway in Italy recently for his latest test back in a kart.

Nico rolled back the years as he tested the CRG with his old team boss Dino Chiesa who is now behind the Italian outfit. With the current rivalry between Nico and Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes you can imagine Dino was glad it was just Nico who turned up as he ran the pair together in karts several years ago.

However Nico was not alone on the day, he was joined by CRG’s latest appointment Flavio Camponeschi. The Italian won the KZ European Championship last year, giving Nico a tough challenge of trying to be fastest on the day.

Both drivers were reported to have spent almost 3 hours behind the wheel each in the new Road Rebel chassis on Maxter engines. Whilst the day was very busy it was also said to be quite funny, which is unusual for the German given his recent behaviour in front of the press.

It was great to see the F1 star out and I’m sure it won’t be too long before another driver off the F1 grid appears somewhere in a kart.
