The Formula 1 circus is in town for the 2015 Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix, flagging-off this weekend at the Sepang International Circuit. Leading up to the 56-lap race, Formula 1-related activities have started to fill up our calendars.

Earlier today, Petronas organised an event with Mercedes AMG Petronas driver Nico Rosberg, son of World Champion Keke Rosberg and considered a strong contender for this year’s Formula 1 Driver’s Championship. The German driver gave taxi rides for a select few at the Binjai multi-storey carpark in KLCC, and we were lucky enough to be one of them.

Rosberg’s weapon of choice was a PETRONAS PRIMAX powered Mercedes-Benz GLA 45 AMG shod with a 360 hp 2.0 litre turbocharged motor with 450 Nm of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels via 4MATIC, through an AMG Speedshift DCT seven-speed dual clutch transmission.

To share our experience, we recorded a simple video for your viewing pleasure. You can also check out a mega gallery after the jump.
