i know lots of people have done those weekend trips on the track where you get to drive a "nascar" thats not fully powered.
how many of you think that with one week of training could actually make it one lap around a course in a REAL F1 car?

just to show you how hard it is, Richard from top gear couldnt even get the car into gear... and he drives supercars for a living LINK
my answer: for starters im too big to even get into the cockpit. but if i could fit in it, i think with a week of training i could get it rolling on a straight away. no way i could handle turns because i know you have to speed up in turns to get grip and heat up the breaks, which doesnt seem right in my mind. so no, i dont think i could, but i would sure as shite enjoy trying
ETA: watch the video in the link if you are super confident you can.... it will make you think twice
