Watch Nico Rosberg blast his F1 car up the Goodwood hill climb


The Mercedes-AMG F1 team has shared exhilarating footage of former racer Nico Rosberg racing up the Goodwood hill climb at last weekend's Festival of Speed.

Shown from the point of view of Rosberg, you see him accelerate hard through the twisty bends and up through the straights, while stopping to perform some donuts for the waiting crowds.

The 2016 Formula One world champion can also be seen waving at crowds as he speeds through the narrow straights, past Goodwood house and onto the finish line.

Mercedes-AMG F1 shared the video on its official Twitter page, saying: "World Champion Nico Rosberg returns to the cockpit to WOW the Goodwood Festival of Speed crowd! Ready for some MEGA turf-tearing donut action!"

The car he is driving, a W05, is the same car that took him to victory at Monaco in May 2014.
