Here is my video of the day a F1 fan drove Lewis Hamilton’s McLaren F1 car at Silverstone. Djorge Simic works in a bank in Serbia, but for one day he got to taste the shattering performance of a 2008 F1 McLaren, the car in which Lewis Hamilton won the 2008 British Grand Prix.
Contributing to the video are Mika Hakkinen and Hamilton – “I bet he’s crapping his pants!” says Hamilton when asked how the fan will be feeling moments before the off.
Simic was chosen from 17 finalists to win the drive as the top prize in McLaren sponsor Johnnie Walker’s Drive of a Lifetime competition.
His reaction after driving the car is hilarious!
Keep your eyes on this site as we will be launching a very exciting competition of our own shortly, which will give two JA on F1 readers a chance to do something unique.
