  1. 1:50 trying to figure out what track Russell is following here. Is it silverstone?

    His motions are quick right, light left, long right, long left, quick left, long left, long right. I think its the start to luffield

  2. I once drove the full Monaco race (78 laps) on my PC…I thought I was going to die…I've never been so exhausted.
    If you relax for a split second you are smashing into a guard rail.

    I really think that what these guys do is a super-human feat of endurance/skill/bravery.
    Marathon runners average about the same heart rate but they don't have to constantly worry about having a life threatening crash.

  3. I have thought of being an F1 driver before, but i think i shall enjoy F1 on the confort of my sofa and a tub of ice cream after seeing how hard they train. Cant wait for 2019 season tho.

  4. don't get me wrong i LOVE Formula 1, but this video just proves that it is NOT a sport. these are childish exercises when you compare it to real physical sports like MMA, Football, Swimming, Power Lifting…etc. Motorsports is a completely different category from normal sports, and there is nothing wrong with that!! thats why i love it
