Yesterday Mercedes-Benz officially announced that seven-time Formula One world-champion Michael Schumacher is to become the newest ambassador for the German luxury car-maker. According to Mercedes, Schumacher, who has won the most titles in F1 history, will be involved in developing new on-board technology and everything related to the “Intelligent Drive” system and safety. He will make his will make his first public appearance as an Ambassador on May 1, 2013 during an event called “The future starts today.”
The only question I have though is, will he be wearing the special edition Audemars Piguet Chronographe Royal Oak Offshore that bears his name, or will he be wearing something from IWC’s new Mercedes AMG Petronas racing-inspired Ingeniur collection? Guesses anyone?
