An exciting start to the event from Mercedes W-10

2014 World Endurance Champion Anthony Davidson opened the event in Hamilton’s car. After a few first laps, the car stopped on Hamilton Straight for a visit from Santa Claus. Santa Claus took a closer look at the car next to Anthony. Stuart Pringle, Managing Director at Silverstone believes this was an ideal way to start this event. It is noteworthy that Silverstone is the home track of the seven-time world champion.

“Anthony and Mercedes-AMG Petronas put on a great show and I couldn’t think of a more fitting way to open the Lap of Lights. I had to assure Santa that the rest of our nights will be at a more subdued pace, as tonight I believe he was a bit shocked to see the W10 approach its grotto at high speed! “Said Stuart Pringle as reported by Autoexpress.
