It’s been done before. Only difference is, this one takes place on live TV and isn’t staged as frequently done for marketing & PR purposes. Nice to see Casey Stoner and Mick Doohan involved (normally pushing the limits on their race bikes), while David Coulthard resumes duty in the Red Bull F1 car. Enjoy the video after the jump.

Video: When an F1 car is used as a hurdle

June 5, 2011

UPDATE: Turns out that the “crazed F1 fan” was actually an official marshall for the charity event, so there may have been some miscommunication at some point. Still, does he make it or not?

Japan is home to some of the craziest F1 fans in the world! This video simply proves it. A man attempted to jump over Sebastian Buemi’s moving Red Bull Formula 1 car at a Red Bull event in Japan. Buemi was luckily driving at a very low 40km/h (approximate) when the fan went for glory. Hit the jump to see if his attempt was successful or not. (more…)

Crowned as the most successful engineer in Formula 1 history, you could say Adrian Newey is the “mad scientist” of racing. Not only have his creations terrorized opponents, but each year he continues to innovate and raise the bar in aerodynamic design. The term “genius” would be an understatement.

Polyphony Digital, creators of the Gran Turismo racing simulator series, teamed up with Red Bull and Newey to create the ultimate racing machine. No rules and no limitations. The result? (more…)

Surviving flight in F1

June 28, 2010

Formula 1 is no easy business. A day at the office means speeds in excess of 260 km/h, the pressure of millions of people watching you at work, and the possibility of one minor mistake behind the wheel resulting with your car slammed into a wall. Guess that’s why they make the big bucks! During yesterday’s European Grand Prix in Valencia, Spain, Mark Webber (Red Bull) was trying to overtake Heikki Kovalainen (Lotus) and ended up (more…)
