F1 Countdown: Mark Webber Narrates a Lap at COTA

One week until the Formula 1 US Grand Prix! Now that I am such an old hand out at Circuit of the Americas, I keep expecting the F1 drivers to call me for advice. No, Sebastian Vettel has not called yet. But he does have approximately six days…

Here’s a cool video that went up today. It is a video of a lap at COTA narrated by Mark Webber, one of the Infiniti Red Bull drivers (and Vettel’s teammate). Red Bull is having a phenomenal season – with two races left in the season (Austin and Brazil) Vettel and Red Bull have already locked up the driver’s and constructor’s championships. Webber is ranked fifth out of 22 drivers, so he probably knows what he’s talking about here. Almost as much as me.

It was interesting watching this video after driving the track; now that I have my bearings, it makes a lot more sense. Feel free to assume that the lap in this video is almost identical to my laps in the Fiat Abarth. But without all the tipping.
