PUMA launches the next RACE OFF video, this time with the Spanish International footballer Cesc F?bregas in the hot seat. Check out his personal performance on http://youtu.be/kQCOP9F4vdA www.puma.com/raceoff, with the English cricketer Craig Kieswetter to follow as the next challenger on Thursday, 20th September 2012.
Before his own performance in the simulator, Cesc F?bregas said, ?If you watch a sport from the outside, it always looks easy. In football, many people on the stand think it must be simple, but I can tell you, as soon as you get onto the pitch, things turn out to be a lot more difficult. I am sure this is the same thing for the Formula One drivers, so I would love to get the chance to once step into Nico Rosberg?s shoes to drive a proper racing car on a circuit.?
This summer, Formula One Star Nico Rosberg of the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS F1 team, challenged some of the best from the world of sport to try their hand in Formula One. PUMA RACE OFF sees sporting stars such as Sergio Agüero, Cesc F?bregas, Michael Carrick and many more given the chance to prove their talent in the fastest sport – the fastest will have the opportunity of a driving lesson from Nico, before putting their skills to the test in a high-performance Mercedes-Benz car around a real racing circuit.
Nico Rosberg commented, ?PUMA RACE OFF is a very interesting concept and I really like the idea of merging different sport categories. And,? he added cheekily, ?I am intrigued to see how all these top athletes perform in a real sport!?
PUMA will launch two new videos every week, showcasing individual player performances on the famous Monza race track which can be seen at: www.puma.com/raceoff. Follow PUMA Motorsport Facebook and @PUMAMotorsport on Twitter for regular updates.
