“Lewis Hamilton is my pick for a road trip companion. I like that he’s ambitious, suave and has such a strong drive for life. We’d drive the Ferrari 488 Spider on the Pacific Coast Highway in California to catch views of the stunning coastline and the Golden Gate Bridge. Our end destination: Malibu Beach., where we’ll take a nice stroll together.”

“My pick is Sebastian Vettel. He’s German like me, drives for Scuderia Ferrari and seems like a down-to-earth guy. We’d take the iconic Ferrari F40 from Munich in Germany, do a bit of controlled speeding on the German autobahn, go up the Brenner Pass that cuts through the Alps, and descend into the Dolomites. We’ll arrive at Sirmione, a resort town overlooking Lake Garda in Italy, just in time for a nice Aperol spritz before dinner.”

“I’d do a road trip with Lewis Hamilton. Our destination would be the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia, North Carolina during autumn. We’d be driving a Rolls-Royce Dawn Black Badge with the top down because the view would be spectacular—the mountainous terrain would be coloured in different shades of autumn and glows to a deep red when the sun sets in the horizon.”

“I’d love to drive the tree-lined route of the Black Forest in Germany with Sebastian Vettel. The winding roads are so picturesque with astounding views of the Rhineland Plain, Vosges Mountains in Alsace, and maybe even the Swiss Alps. And we’d drive the Ferrari 812 Superfast because no other sports car can provide the same level of performance, beauty and spirit as a Ferrari.”
