MUST-SEE: Vettel drives Mansell's iconic 1992 Williams FW14B at Silverstone


Thirty years ago this month Nigel Mansell raced to a dominant and hugely popular British Grand Prix win in front of a euphoric Silverstone crowd, who broke ranks and stormed the track as he toured around on his victory lap.

Mansell went on to win the championship that season in the iconic Williams FW14B car – a car that current Aston Martin driver and keen F1 history buff Sebastian Vettel now owns.

And to mark the 30th anniversary of Mansell's triumph, Vettel decided to bring the car to Silverstone with him for this year's British Grand Prix, and he took it out on track for a demonstration run on Sunday morning before the race – with Mansell himself in attendance to watch.

And just to prove he's just as interested in the future as he is the past, Vettel used carbon neutral fuel for the demo.

Hit play on the video above to see Vettel at the wheel of one of the most dominant cars in F1 history – and to hear its V10 Renault engine screaming as he powers round the circuit.
