On Sunday morning, while Jenson Button was leading the Australian Grand Prix in Melborne, I had a chance to put in some fast laps too! I visited Silverstone for a single seater driving experience.

At 140bhp these Formula Ford cars lack the power of an F1 car, but they do capture something of the excitement. Capable of accelerating from 0-60 in 4.5seconds, they will do about 100mph before hitting the rev limiter in fourth. Absolutely brilliant fun!
