    Wink Putin tests F1 car

    Russia's Putin drives Formula 1 car at 150 miles per hour | Russia | RIA Novosti



    Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin tested his capacities as a Formula 1 pilot, driving a racing car for several hours at a speed of 240 km/ h (149 miles per hour) on a special track in the Leningrad Region in Russia's northwest.
    Three racing cars - two vehicles for racing in the Formula's youth completions and one intended for the Formula 1 Grand Prix, were put on show in St. Petersburg on November 6 and 7. As part of the presentation of the racing cars, Putin personally drove a racing car on a special track in the Leningrad Region. Before getting into the car's cockpit, the premier received detailed instructions on how to drive the racing car.
    The premier put on a helmet with Russia's national emblem and the word Russia inscribed on it, and also a Formula 1 outfit with his initials. The yellow color of the racing car was reminiscent of the Lada Kalina sport car that Putin had used to drive along the Chita-Khabarovsk Highway in the Russian Far East earlier this year.
    A month ago, Putin attended a ceremony of signing an agreement with Formula One in the Russian Black Sea resort city of Sochi, under which Russia will stage a Grand Prix in the country between 2014 and 2020.

    Sounds like it has a bike motor in it.
    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?

    sounds like he's not pushing it to me..the startup and leaving the crew as well as the initial blast all sounds F1 to me. The rest just sounds like he's in the wrong gear or not pushing it

    Well he drives 2 cars in the vid, one obviously a smaller car, but the bigger one may be some kind of modified/bastardized F1 car, but not one that looks like anything recent. Might even be an outfitted GP2 car.
