Red Bull Stratos and space dive hero Felix Baumgartner puts his trust in the hands of our very own Sebastian Vettel and David Coulthard, swapping the speed of sound for the sound of speed in a 3 seater F1 car as it flies around the Paul Ricard Circuit…
Susie, 30, who is a development driver for Williams, made the announcement yesterday in Barcelona, Spain – where Williams unveiled the new FW35 car, by team mates Pastor Maldonado and Valtteri Bottas. In her role as development driver, Susie was the first to run the car last week ahead of the start of the season.
Directed by her award winning, BAFTA-nominated brother David Stoddart, 31, the no-holds-barred film will be broadcast as part of BBC Scotland’s spring schedule, and features appearances from Formula One race ace Lewis Hamilton and racing legend David Coulthard.
Red Bull Racing’s Show Car recently completed a second All-American adventure. Driven by David Coulthard, the 2011 Championship-winning RB7 toured Liberty State Park and its spectacular views of the New York City skyline and the Statue of Liberty. The RB7 then moved on to one of the main arteries linking New York and New Jersey – the Lincoln Tunnel. Wrapping up its American vacation, the RB7 became the first Formula One car to lay rubber on the Grand Prix of America streets in West New York and Weehawken, New Jersey, bringing residents out of their homes to catch the historic sight.
Former Formula One driver David Coulthard drove the Red Bull Racing Running Show Car through the 1.5 mile Lincoln Tunnel, which connects New York and New Jersey. Coulthard hit speeds of 190 miles per hour, no doubt setting the record for the fastest-ever commute through the tunnel.
Here are some videos from the event:
