Nigel Mansell "Smokes" A BMW Sauber F1 Car At Silverstone

One time F1 World Champion and three-time British Grand Prix winner, Nigel Mansell, travelled us a few years back last Friday when the former F1 driver was invited to the BMW Sauber F1 Team Pit Lane Park at Silverstone Circuit. Mansell took the driver’s place in a 2006 BMW Sauber F1 car and performed among other things, several doughnuts which obviously thrilled the crowd.

Asked how many doughnuts he had completed, Mansell joked: "I lost count, but I had a fantastic time. It’s the first time I have driven a Formula One car and not had any problems with it!". As for the differences between today’s F1 cars and their ancestors Mansell said, "That took me back. The BMW drives in a similar way to the F1 cars of my era, but the technology advances that have been made since are phenomenal." -Continued after the jump

Over the weekend the '06 BMW Sauber F1 Team car was also driven by 1995 British Grand Prix winner, Johnny Herbert, and BMW Sauber F1 Team driver, Sebastian Vettel.
