You’ve always wanted to ride along in an F1 car around Silverstone right? I’m not sure you’ll find a better view than the one created by the Mercedes F1 team with some stunning 360 degree camera technology.
The idea is simple, the execution is perfect. Place a camera on the side of the 2014 Mercedes Benz W05 Formula 1 Car – its first track outing – a “shakedown” at the famous Silverstone Circuit in England.
When you get all that vision into a technology called Visualise you get this result. It’s fantastic.
Four minutes on-board with Nico which you could watch over and over and over again – because you are the director.
Look alongside the car
Even Zoom in (and notice Nico’s “watch” which is embodied onto his race-glove)
All that’s left is for you to enjoy. Click in the box below to start the video – and then look around!

As a huge fan of F1, and as someone who has watched all the Red Bull F1 stunts over the years such as the Tom Cruise test drive and more – I’d say the message from Mercedes is : Your Move Red Bull Racing.
