Can Vettel make an ambulance go faster than a 488 GTB?

By Faiming_low on 05 Aug 2016 in Other News, Videos

Attached Image In this shell sponsored clip, Formula 1 world champion Sebastian Vettel goes against an ambulance driver on a race track. But can he beat his opponent who is driving a 488 GTB while he takes over his ambulance?

Alex Knapton (the paramedic) has, at his disposal, 661bhp and 760Nm of torque while Vettel has to make do with a 118bhp van. To make things worse, the ambulance weighs a solid three tonnes while the supercar comes in at less than 1,400kg.

Watch the video below and see who's the faster one!

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

Makes no sense. What is the objective of this video?

It's just a publicity stunt.

I'm fairly confident this was totally fixed. I can't imagine anyone but a *terrible* driver losing in a 488GTB against an ambulance in any kind of timed lap. Even if the ambulance was being driven by Senna.

 

Ambulance drivers (I should hope!) are not terrible. They should've gone for some kind of advanced driver training at least.
