    Even if Hammond is screaming or music is kicking in, you can clearly hear the F1, its still as loud as it should be

    a bat on a superbike

  • HemistReborn ^( says:

    F1 represents the sheer power and technology that we have made. They push the envelope and defy all sense. The acceleration and observable speed is mind-blowing.

    “Whats an engine rebuild on a formula 1 car”

    Thats not the question they wanted to hear

  • papapapa16 ^( says:

    It doesn't matter how much of a good driver you are, never underestimate any machine that you never tried before, learned that the hard way with a quad bike. Can't imagine a F1 car.

    It's like being overwhelmed at Super Saiyan, then the car goes even further.

    I love how engineers goes "lets do 1500hp per tonne… and oh, lets make sure it can play a song as well with the engine"

  • Mung Daal ^( says:

  • Callum C-J ^( says:

    Why let hammond, of all people, drive an f1 car

  • Matt Bolt ^( says:

    To think that the V10 was barely clearing it's throat when it sang the national anthem. And that's all the range today's V6 can manage…pathetic.

  • Matt Bolt ^( says:

    While this is dramatised for TV, nothing can hide his reaction to that glorious V10. That's what I love about this video. It does a great job to convey to the average joe the absolutely beautiful savagery that is an F1 car.

  • Joel Lucas ^( says:

    Richard Hammond was probably the most happiest man on Earth that day. Driving a F1 car. He probably have or-CAR-gasm. So much fun he have

    And last but not least, it was honor to drive for F1 team for 1 day
