This Is Why F1 Teams Don’t Let Drivers Turn Wrenches

Both Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button are incredibly quick and utterly fearless behind the wheel of a race car, but would you want them building one for you? Personally, I’d say “no”, and that’s even before I watched this Vodafone ad posted on Autoevolution.

Best lines of the video? Hamilton says to Button, “Imagine how scary it is, though”, referring to the crewman tasked with changing tires in a pit stop. Better line? Button asks Hamilton, “So do you want to take it out first?”, to which Hamilton replies, “Nah, I think we leave Garrett to do it.” Button, in agreement, “Yeah, that’s what test drivers are for.”

Maybe Hamilton will have a little more respect for his crew, now that he’s seen what it takes to put a car together. Doubtful, but we can hope, right?
