Motor sport and time pieces
Today on 25 May 2013 during Grand Prix Monaco, Formula 1 drivers Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes AMG Petronas racing team) were presented by Swiss watch maker IWC Schaffhausen as the new ambassadors of the label. Nico Rosberg is personally connected to the Swiss watch brand and remembers that his first watch was an IWC, a gift from his father. Lewis Hamilton says about the cooperation "I love wristwatches, and it seems to me that those made by IWC have a lot in common with Formula One drivers: they're unique, high-performance watches and are among the best in their field."
Both drivers are currently in pole position for tomorrow's race in Monte Carlo (video interview on skysports.com).
