Leading up to the inaugural Indian GP, Nico Rosberg repeatedly spoke of his desire to visit the Taj Mahal but had to cancel his planned trip to the iconic monument due to logistical issues.
"I was told it is a three-hour drive to the Taj and then four hours back," said Rosberg. "So I decided not to do it." Far braver, however, was his compatriot and defending double world champion Sebastian Vettel, who took to the road and found plenty to see there as well.
"I asked the driver if people have licence in India," said Vettel. "The driver told me that people just buy them here!" So it seems as if Vettel has beaten Rosberg to yet another milestone.
Considering of course Red Bull's penchant for going the extra mile to promote itself - they took a show car up to the Himalayas for crying out loud - it doesn't come as much of a surprise that their drivers are gung ho about going the extra mile to soak in all they can of a new location on F1's calendar.
