More and more F1 drivers in kart

Once again, there was a Formula One atmosphere last Friday in Lonato. This time it’s been Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg’s turn, who took on the track on LH-Iame and Zanardi-Iame (KF) respectively, with the assistance and support of Dino Chiesa

It was the first time after 9 years absence in kart for Hamilton – in terms of proper testing – just like for Rosberg. After having fun with his brother on a Rotax Max, Lewis started rolling with his KF, later swapped for a KZ – “truly exciting” were his words.
Later on, both F1 drivers concentrated on KF, starting a bet on who’s going to be fastest. The two settled on a very good pace, hitting the 43”6, a very good laptime considering the little karting practice of the past years and the low winter temperatures, though the track was kissed by the sun almost all day.
