Watch Fernando Alonso Drift the 1951 Ferrari 375 F1
Before the 2011 British GP at Silverstone, Fernando Alonso got to drive Bernie Ecclestone own Ferrari 375 F1. It was in this same car that José Froilán "Cabezón" Gonzáles won the 1951 British GP amidst the corn fields of Silverstone.
I'm surprised nobody complained Alonso got an unfair advantage getting extra laps behind that glorious 4500cc Lampredi V12... oh wait, it's the internet, I'm sure someone has. :). Nando's first lap is for waving but then he takes another extra lap for a little vintage style 4 wheel drifts...nice!
