F1 stars and their awesome free cars

Being an F1 driver sounds like a pretty good job. Its glamorous, extremely well paid and you get to travel the world while doing the odd race or two.
What makes it even better is the fantastic free cars that they get given.

Jenson Button – Mercedes C63 AMG


Jenson Button gets paid millions of pounds a year, so can afford whatever car he likes. Mercedes, being very kind, have given him this, frankly awesome, C63 AMG Estate. Its no ordinary C63 either, its the DR520 special edition.

0-60 in 4.2 seconds, capable of 187mph and plenty of space in the back. Perfect for Jensons trips to Ikea.

Fernando Alonso – Maserati GranCabrio

Fernando Alonso drives for Ferrari, who are owned by Fiat. Fiat also own Maserati. So they decided to give Alonso a little present for doing well.
But Fiat didnt give him a Fiat Punto or Multipla, they chose to gave him the stunning Maserati GranCabrio.
Starting at 95,000, and with a 4.7 V8, its the perfect car for Fernandos days off.

Lewis Hamilton – Mercedes GL

Lewis Hamilton is a very talented and successful driver, and hes done very well with McLaren. To reward his remarkable achievements, Mercedes (who own McLaren), let him choose whatever Mercedes he wanted.
He chose the huge GL-Class. But he didnt go for the super-fast GL500 version, he chose the diesel!

Heikki Kovalainen – Lotus Evora

To welcome Heikki to the Lotus F1 team, they gave him a nice little present. A custom Lotus Evora.
And what colour scheme did the Finnish driver choose? That of his national flag of course!

Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa – Abarth 500
