Nico and Keke to drive title winning cars in Monaco

Monaco Grand Prix winners, father and son, Keke and Nico Rosberg will do demo runs in their title-winning cars on Thursday, after FP1, during the Formula 1 weekend at the Principality.

Keke who won his F1 world title in 1982 will take a blast to the past at the wheel of the Williams FW08
while Nico will be reunited with his 2016 championship winning Mercedes W07.

Rosberg senior spent nine years in Formula 1 retiring at the end of 1986 after winning five times, while his son spent a decade in the top tier and won on 23 occasions.

Nico posted a video on Twitter where he announced: “On Thursday lunchtime I’m going to be driving with my dad. We’re both going to be getting into our world championship winning Formula 1 cars, my dad in his 1982 car me in my 2016 car.

“So we’re going to be bombing it around Monaco together for a couple of laps. I think it’s going to be good fun, I’m really looking forward to it,” added Nico

Both Rosbergs are Monaco Grand Prix winners, with junior winning the race in 2013 and senior grabbing victory three decades earlier in 1983.

They are still the only father and son to have won the Monaco Grand Prix, although Graham Hill and Gilles Villeueve won in Monte-Carlo their sons Damon and Jacques never did.
