Eye Level F1 Lap

In this video we can see Luca Di Grassi testing new Pirelli rubber in Barcelona, using Pirelli’s own test car. A camera was placed within the visor of his helmet so that we may glimpse what only a lucky few have been able to.

Granted, Luca was taking it easy as one of his eyes was being covered by the camera making the lap a bit tricky. But, this video doesn’t shy away from giving me chills. Those gearshifts through his state-of-the-art sequential gearbox must feel like a sledgehammer each time he goes up and down. Amazing.

Oh, fun fact! That steering wheel is most likely worth more than your house. :-D

Stay classy, Gearheads.
