WATCH: Raikkonen and Giovinazzi scare each other on the Nurburgring’s Nordschleife circuit
Formula 1 may have returned to the Nurburgring Grand Prix circuit for the first time since 2013 this year, but if you were an F1 driver between 1951 and 1976, you’d have been expected to race on the track next door: the fearsome 14.2-mile Nordschleife.
To get a sense of what that would have been like, Alfa Romeo sent their drivers Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi to each drive a lap of the Nordschleife (these days shortened to 12.9-miles) with the other in the passenger seat – an experience that Raikkonen seemed to enjoy infinitely more than his Italian team mate...
Enjoy Raikkonen and Giovinazzi’s hilarious laps in the video above.
