Last time we checked, Lewis Hamilton was an F1 driver for the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One team, which means that he isn’t exactly the man you can trust about test driving a Mercedes A45 AMG.
Nevertheless, Mercedes-Benz has recently released a video that shows the Formula One driver doing just that. The clip sees Hamilton put the A45 AMG through its paces and then offering us his impressions on the car.

Regardless of what we said in the intro paragraph, it’s fun to watch Hamilton put the hot hatch to work. Don’t believe us? Well, how else would you rate and F1 driver saying that the throttle in the A45 AMG is “quite sensitive, like a Formula One car”?

You can see Hamilton put the turbocharged engine to use, both in the dry and in the wet, in the video below. We don't want to spoil the fun, but we have to tell you not to expect any slides...
