Nearly a month ago, we reported that Michael Schumacher will drive the 2011-spec Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 W02 Formula 1 car around the Nurburgring\'s Nordschleife circuit as a run-up to the Nurburgring 24-hour endurance race.

Well, the race happened this past weekend and since this was a milestone event--the last time a Mercedes-Benz F1 Silver Arrow race car was on the Nordschleife circuit was in the 1954 German Grand Prix--the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team had to capture it on video.

The event turned out to be a race with a Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG driven by Bernd Maylander starting first, followed by Karl Wendlinger in an E63 AMG S, Nico Rosberg in an SLS AMG Black Series, and Bernd Schneider in an SLS AMG GT3. Schumacher\'s role was to start last in the F1 car and then reel in all four cars that started ahead of him and finish the race in front of them all.

Check out the video to find out how much of the 20.832km lap it took Schumacher to catch up with all four cars.
