With the Formula One season heating up, we take a look at two locations where you can meet IWC ambassadors who are of course race car drivers!

The Formula One weekend doesn’t just bring some of the finest race-car drivers and their extraordinary teams. It is also a chance for sponsors to bring fans closer to their idols, and to iconic shopping destinations around the island, during the Formula One Singapore Grand Prix 2016 weekend. In fact, from September 10, fans of the race will be able to head down to The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands to try out the special F1 simulator.Mercedes Formula One Team Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg

The simulator can be found next to the IWC Schaffhausen boutique and will be made available to the public from 10am to 10pm daily until September 18 at 6pm. On September 14, IWC Schaffhausen brand ambassador, Lewis Hamilton, will make an appearance at Marina Bay Sands store to set his race lap time. Apart from taking on the simulator himself, Hamilton will also be meeting fans in a question and answer session. The lucky winner with the best lap time — who knows it may be better than Hamilton’s – will win exclusive F1 merchandise signed by the Formula One driver.

Alongside the stimulator, fans can also get a glimpse of the Mercedes-AMG GT as it sits proudly on display at level one. With a masculine design and unbridled power, it is a display that will capture the heart of any racing fan.

Over at ION Orchard, a full-scale replica of the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One team garage will be on display, which brings the race to the heart of the city. Located at the Atrium, it will be the first time the public will be able to witness the engineering excellence that drives the racing team. On September 15, racing driver Nico Rosberg, another IWC ambassador, will visit the garage showcase while visitors can take part in an on-site contest to guess his race day fastest lap time.
