Vladimir Putin drives an F1 car (w/video)

We all know Vladimir Putin is one tough guy, just look at his career: former KGB, former President and current Prime Minister of Russia, while listing judo as one of his favorite past-times. So seeing him behind the wheel of an F1 car didn’t surprise me at all. The man loves a challenge!

The Renault F1 team, already having a Russian driver (Vitaly Petrov) in the team and support from a major Russian sponsor (Lada), handed the opportunity to the Prime Minister to give the Renault a go. How fast you ask? 240 km/h. Not too shabby, eh? Watch the video after the jump.
