2014 FIA World Endurance champion and 2016 Formula E champion Sébastien Buemi went to his home country of Switzerland for a challenge of size. He sent his RB8 – the car in which Sebastian Vettel 2012 world champion F1 was – by the sharp hairpin bends of the legendary Tremolastrasse, a route that is already in use by the Romans was used, and from 1832 the town of Airolo and the gotthard pass covenant.
Buemi came about 12.7 kilometres of treacherous cobblestones to the top on 2.106 m. Auto races were, however, forbidden for a long time in Switzerland, after a fatal crash during the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1955. “Racing here is so long been forbidden. Thus, it is an incredible feeling to an F1 car on one of the most beautiful roads in the world. I really never forget,” says ex-Scuderia Toro Rosso driver Sébastien Buemi.
