The race takes place at Silverstone, and in the F1 car is Jenson Button. He’s up against fellow racing drivers Kevin Magnussen in a McLaren 650S supercar and Stoffel Vandoorne in a European-spec Honda Civic Sport hot hatch.

Ironically, the F1 car featured here is the Mercedes-powered McLaren MP4-29 from the 2014 season. Given the poor performance of the Honda-powered MP4-30 this season, the result may have been very different if the newer car was used.
