Max Chilton’s new Revival racer has V8 power and rear-wheel drive – and last year, you could have said the same about his Marussia F1 car too.
But the trouble with F1 is that everything happens in a split second. The world’s best drivers are plying their trade in such a ‘blink and you miss it’ fashion that its difficult to keep up. Historic racing? If the obligatory Dunlop tyres lose grip it can take an age for the friction co-efficient to swing back in the driver’s favour, even with all the skill in the world. Gear-changes can’t be rushed, brakes can’t be snatched at – so stick in an F1 star and we get to see the talent in slow motion. Well, sort of.
“It never stops moving underneath you” Max says about the Mustang, and you can see for yourself in this on-board video. And for more pictures and insights from Max, head this way!
