What’s it like to drive an F1 car? Last week I was lucky enough to test a 1997 Benetton V10 Formula One, in my opinion, one of the coolest from the 90s era. This is the film about the test from a chilly Donington Park.
I’ve been fortunate and have driven more than 20 Formula One cars, from seasons 1982 to 2012, but this is one of my favourites. The 1997 Benetton and it’s raw normally-aspirated Judd V10 engine are a combination that both excites and intimidates.
This is my first vlog, so please let me know what you think in the comments below and if you’d like to see more about the more interesting cars I get to drive.
