He’s throwing her around. There’s is a great video of a girl in a Sweden where a driver takes his girlfriend. Pulling about 3G considerably more than this. To me he is to friendly to be in the current no prisoners F1.

Vettel is thinking: "this is so slow but still fun" And us mere mortals can only dream of having Vettel's skills, let alone owning a supercar.

If you own a supercar, it doesn't necessarily mean you will have his skills, but if you have his skills you will be able to afford several supercars because you will be rich :D

Nice vid, hope you enjoyed the ride. Though, since I've driven some performance cars myself - I can't help but to ask. Did you not receive any instructions before hand regarding how to "stay in your seat"? For example "hold this handle here" or something? Because It doesn't look to comfortable to be tossed around in the seat like that and it can't be very enjoyable. Not to say it isn't very safe either. Another time - try to hold on to something. Most cars have handles for that purpose, in the doorsides and the inner-side of the frame(A-pole) or the roof above the side-window. That way you can enjoy the ride a little bit better. I'm surprised Vettel did not react to the tossing-around. Cheers
Yoshimurha (4 years ago)
@Laszlo Makrai I've been in both seats yes. Sure you have to "press against" in the turns and bend a little forward to counter the G-forces. She didn't even bother to do it for reasons I can only assume is due to a lack of knowledge of available "tools". But what is shown in the video is downright unsafe. That is not an opinion, that is just fact. And I personally think Ferrari/Vettel should have a smack on the fingers for it.  Don't get me wrong, I'm certainly not trying to bad-talk either Ferrari or Vettel in any way. But I think it is unprofessional and unsafe to let a situation like this simply continue - that because both parties (Ferrari and Vettel) knows fully well what forces the body is exposed of and what injuries someone risk in a situation like that.  And I honestly do not think many people would feel comfortable in telling either Vettel or Ferrari to slow down in the middle of the situation because subjectively - "you" are likely to feel "honored" just for having been offered the opportunity to ride a Ferrari with the 4-time F1-world champion in the first place. Thus I think there is even more responsibility placed on the driver to use his/her (Vettel in this specific case) judgement and take appropriate action. It is not necessarily stopping the car and going back to the pits. But it could be simply to tell the passenger where to hold on and how to behave for her own safety and to avoid injury or risk thereof. If such instructions was given beforehand she certainly did not apply them and thus once again we come back to the drivers judgement and responsibility. Cheers

+Yoshimurha Vettel had one advantages - He was holding the wheel. Believe me it does not take much to be thrown in a car with half the HP. No handles will keep you in there unless holding the wheel and have strong muscles. She had neither at her disposal at that moment.
Yoshimurha (4 years ago)
@Alanis King Sure just it wasn't a few times it was basically every turn. Don't get me wrong, I don't begrudge you the ride. I'm just saying it is not healthy to to be tossed around like that from a pure fact point of view. It gets non-natural strains on your neck-muscles and surrounding muscles. Tossing around is never ok in a car, especially not at high speeds. It is the drivers responsibility to inform the passenger where to hold on if he or she gets tossed around. So hold on to something next time. That's all I'm saying. :) Cheers
Alanis King (4 years ago)
+Yoshimurha Thank you! It was a blast. Having been on both the driving and riding side multiple times, it's far easier to not sway when you're in the driver's seat. When you hop in a car with Vettel, you're going to get tossed around a few times--still incredibly fun, and not uncomfortable!

Great job Ms. King, way too short though (looking at you, AW)! I was going to say "once-in-a-lifetime experience", but you're young and I hope you have more chances to do stuff like this! Great job keeping witty despite the G-forces! (May I suggest you always wear your hair down for ride alongs, it really emphasizes the crazy performance of that car)! Re "better you driving than me!"; you should have asked to take it for a lap. I'm sure that's against the rules, but sometimes a gentleman will bend the rules for a lady, and Vettel seems a gentleman. Totally jealous... Good job on all fronts!

Thanks, I'm familiar with the concept. This reporter (+Alanis King) is only a college student (I think) and yet better than most writer/commentators who are fat old boring guys who've lost their enthusiasm and excitement for such things. Additionally, she's witty, speaks flawlessly and thinks on her feet even at 100MPH; talents which are rare and disappearing, to be replaced with talking-head "reporters" who go silent if the TelePrompTer malfunctions! Plus there's the g-load indicating coiffure... =)
