Ahead of the Australian Grand Prix, home favorite Daniel Ricciardo took the Infiniti Red Bull Racing F1 show car to the RAAF base at Sale, Australia, to pit it against the astonishing power of an F/A-18 Hornet.
With a top speed of 236-mph, the Red Bull Racing show car seemed at a disadvantage against the 1,242-mph Hornet. The Aussie driver made a quicker start than the Hornet. But once the fighter jet built up speed, no amount of DRS was going to help.
“The craziest part was looking in my mirrors and seeing a Hornet," said Daniel. "It was very surreal. I definitely felt the pure power of the Hornet, and as it passed me I was just hoping that it wasn’t going to blow me off the track."
