Formula One’s audience base has grown in leaps and bounds over the last few years thanks to Netflix’ Drive To Survive and social media. Drivers have massive online followings and whether they’re posting a glimpse into their personal lives on Instagram or hilarious behind-the-scenes antics, fans just can’t get enough.
In the lead up to the 2022 season I found myself craving F1 content and found a few gems online. Here are my top 5 hilarious F1 videos:
5: Carlos Sainz & Lando Norris take on the McLaren Milk Challenge
Carlos and Lando each take turns to complete a slalom course and a brake test with their team-mate in the passenger seat holding a very full bowl of milk on their lap. The one who spills the least, wins! These two are super funny and it looks like they have a genuine friendship.
I just feel sorry for the person who’s job it is to get rid of that new ‘cow’ smell…
4: Sebastian Vettel & Charles Leclerc do the Hourglass Challenge
Speaking of challenges, this one had me laughing too. Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel were tested on how well they know their five senses. The way Charles gives the wrong answers so confidently gets me every time. These guys make fun of each other in such a sweet way, it warms my heart. If you watch this for only one reason, it should be the way Charles says “Soya Soas”.
3: Snack Wars with Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo
These guys have to be my favourite duo in F1. Danny Ric & Lando share and rate some of their favourite nostalgic treats from their homes in Australia and the U.K. After watching this video I’m convinced if the whole racing driver thing doesn’t work out, Danny definitely has a future as food critic. Lando, not so much…
2: Norris, Russell, Leclerc & Albon compete in hilarious F1 quiz
The guys take The twitch Quartet Challenge in this hilarious F1 video to see how well they know each other. In doing so, we get to know them a little better too. I now know who to call if I’m ever being attacked by giant hornets!
1: C² Challenge – The Song Challenge
In my final video Charles Leclerc & Carlos Sainz see who can guess the artist and song title the quickest and it’s so much fun to watch. The singing, the dance moves, the playful rivalry – I just love these two! I guess this is as close as I’ll ever get to my fantasy of playing Noot Vir Noot with an F1 driver.
