Vladimir Putin Formula 1 Test Drive

Politicians are typically hateful, but Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is a cool guy! He’s a master in Jodo, goes hunting in his 4×4 Lada, and now even drives Formula 1 cars and hit 240 km/h! After he made Bernie Ecclestone to bring F1 to Russia from 2014, now Putin is also helping with publicity for the upcoming event. It will also help his own image as a leading politician and a powerful man who does whatever the hell he wants!

The car that Putin drove in a special course in St. Petersburg, after a long briefing by professionals, is of course a Renault which Russia sponsors because of their driver there, Vitaly Petrov. The man also wore a unique helmet styled with colours of Russia and the national emblem of the double-headed-eagle. His test drive was not completely trouble-free, as he had a couple of spins!

Here’s a video of Mr.Putin test drive that was also televised in Russia:
