F1 Cars Ripping Through City Streets And Doing Donuts Will Always Rule

Remember a scene in the shambolic 1996 racing movie Driven starring Sylvester Stallone in which the pair of single seaters battled it out on city streets? It happens in the real life.

Ahead of last weekend’s British Grand Prix in Silverstone, London’s roads were turned into the racing circuit, as the fleet of Formula One cars were unleashed onto the city streets as part of the Formula 1 Live event hosted in the Trafalgar Square and Whitehall attracting crowds of over 10,000 fans.

Among the drivers at this event were F1 favorites Sebastian Vettel, Daniel Ricciardo and Fernando Alonso, who engraved this British capital’s streets with tire marks.

Sebastian Vettel even performed some crowd-pleasing donuts not far from Buckingham Palace – it is not every day you see the Formula One car do donuts on the public road.

This event marked the first time all 10 teams had gathered outside of the race weekend. Of the 20 current drivers in a current season, Lewis Hamilton was the only driver who wasn’t at this event as he decided to go on holiday before this British Grand Prix.

If you are not the fan of the muted turbo V6s powering today’s Formula 1 cars, and some ear-splitting vintage machines with screaming, the naturally-aspirated V8s were also on display to remind fans of Formula One’s heyday.

With a future of the iconic Silverstone racing circuit now in doubt on the Formula 1 racing calendar, let’s hope Formula One’s new owners can make a long-proposed London street racing circuit the reality.
