What happens when you pit an F1 world champion against the world’s most famous hoonigan? Well, you get the TopGear Festival in Barbados apparently.
Lewis Hamilton and Ken Block went head to head on the track after a short meet-and-greet in the garages – Hamilton in his Mercedes F1 WO4 and Block in his Fiesta ST rallycross car. The cars couldn’t have been more different but the race ended in quite a spectacular fashion.
Ken’s electrifying start might be the only time a Fiesta has ever made an overtaking move on an F1 car. Two words – “smoky burnouts.”
