In the recent online archives, we came across this epic onboard around the Algarve International Circuit, an incredible ride upon an A1 Team Brazil GP car, piloted by Felipe Guimarães. Brazillian Guimarães competed in the A1GP class back in 2008-2009, after graduating from karting through a series of lower formulas.
In his distinct silver and fluorescent car, the then-18-year-old winds around the 2.9-mile circuit, as the commentators analyse his racing line. Reaching speeds approaching 170mph (270km/h according to the on-screen odometer), the talented driver sets the fastest lap of the race at 1 minute 32.4 seconds, ahead of both America and Great Britain. Eventually he placed a respectable seventh, his joint-second best result of the season. Holy moly, are we exited to see modern F1 cars at Portimao!
