Every week Unlimited Mileage brings you an interesting or otherwise entertaining video from the world of motoring.
This video isn’t just amazing because it shows how fearless Formula 1 drivers really are, or because Spa is one of the best tracks out there. It’s also amazing because the camera is actually at eye level of the driver, and there’s only one way to achieve this- placing the device over the driver’s eye. So not only is he driving at high speed round Spa- in the wet too- he’s also doing it with only one eye.
We bow our heads to your fearlessness and skill, O nameless driver. Just kidding- his name is Lucas di Grassi, a Pirelli test driver. “I had to drive with only one eye open as the camera was blocking my other eye,” he said, “quite tricky.”
