Filmed at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona during a test session, the McLaren driver Kimi Raikkonen takes time out to drink a can of Nescafe Xpress during a pit stop. The Ukrainian model Sasha Volkova also features in the spot as a helpful member of Raikkonen's pit crew. The ad ends with the tagline: "The pleasure that recharges. Nescafe Xpress."

In 2004, Nestle, which owns the Nescafe Xpress brand, announced a 1.4 per cent decline in global sales to 86.6 million Swiss francs.
