Sebastian Vettel has announced his retirement from Formula 1 by the end of this year. After winning all four consecutive drivers’ championships from 2010 to 2013, the German left Red Bull to join his dream of becoming king with Ferrari, but failed to achieve it in his six years at Scuderia. After two seasons of racing for Aston Martin, he would quit racing and begin living a life of his beliefs.
It is that Vettel is the driver who has been most involved for social and climate reasons. he was the first to go Melbourne that Friday 13 March 2020 The world is terrified by the announcement of COVID-1. by pandemic He did it before knowing that the Grand Prix would be cancelled, as he felt that in such a situation, he should be with his family in her house. and since then, Vettel has turned his attention to humanity, from protecting women’s rights in Saudi Arabia to announcing the first Miami GP underwater in 2060 due to climate change.
But they are not the only ones who have raised environmental issues. Another among them is Nico Rosberg, who retired from the track in 2016 after beating Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes to become champion. Since then, he has been an ambassador for the brand in matters related to electric vehicles, but has since gone even further. Became an investor in environmentally conscious projects, including Formula E, Tier Mobility, Lilium and ChargePoint. is even Founding member of the Greentech Festival, an annual European fair for all forms of green development.
“Sustainability is not an investment trend, but a necessity. Our global economy will collapse if we do not do everything possible to reduce its negative impact on the planet., Many companies have already adapted to be more environmentally conscious, and governments around the world are acting on stricter regulations. Investors can help drive this growth,” Rosberg said in an interview. Gentleman’s Journal.
And just as Vettel has been persistent in retiring from racing, because he was participating in a sport, working to reduce it to the bare minimum possible, not only in competitions but also in transfers, there is a large amount of atmosphere in the atmosphere. In CO2 emissions, Rosberg did something similar.
Like every Formula 1 driver, speed and power are inseparable parts of his life, and even if he doesn’t compete, his taste for sports cars will never dwindle. The interesting thing about the case is that The Mercedes with which he became the Formula 1 champion produces 1,000 hp . did not reach between its internal combustion engine and the electric engine, And now he has an electric sports coupe in his garage that has double that power: the Rimac Navera.
Rosberg was one of the first to order his refrigerator from the Met Remake a few years back, and even visited the factory CroatiaTo see how the world’s most powerful electric hypercar was built. A few weeks ago, the company’s founder and CEO announced the start of deliveries of the first cars, and naturally Rosberg was one of them.
The German ex-pilot traveled to Zagreb to pick up the Navara number 001, where the Rimac factory is located.and thus be the first customer to use your car. fridge 000As announced by the Mate Remac itself, will remain in factory hands A milestone in its history.
Rosberg’s car is completely black, a metal called stellar black And the only thing that hasn’t been painted that color are the rims, which remain chromed and polished. Inside, everything maintains the same tone, ending in black alcantara and signature “Nico Rosberg” Embroidered on the armrest.
As a review, it is worth remembering that at present The Rimac Navera is the world’s fastest production car for miles, completing them in 8.6 seconds, but its acceleration is also 0 to 100 km/h in 1.85 seconds and a top speed 412 km/h. As noted, the power doesn’t reach 2,000 cv, but it’s pretty close, because Its four electric motors add up to 1,914 hp along with 2,360 Nm of torque. Only 150 units will be manufactured and the price is 2 million euros.
