Go On-Board With A Formula One Car (Video)

F1 point of viewApparently, this is the first ever eye-level camera on a Formula One car, giving us an idea of what it is like to race around a track at speeds of well over 200 km/h before diving into a hairpin turn.

The track is in Barcelona and the driver of the car is Lucas di Grassi, who had the following to say about the ride:

“I had to drive with only one eye open as the camera was blocking my other eye, quite tricky”

Lucas may have been able to do this with only one eye, but if you are ever required to drive a vehicle at speeds in excess of 200 km/h, I’d advice you do so with the help of two eyes, rather than one.
