Riding shotgun with a former Formula 1 driver in an Audi R8

Audi R8 at Ordos International Circuit

Last month, we got an invite to cover Rounds 5 and 6 of the Audi R8 LMS Cup to be held at the Ordos International Circuit in Inner Mongolia, China. This race series started earlier this year and is apparently Audi's first-ever one-make series.

Naturally, we sent our motorsports editor (and nonpareil photographer) Mikko David. The lucky bastard had the time of his life riding shotgun with a former Formula 1 driver at the wheel of an R8. And he had the mind to capture the lap on video so he could make us green with envy.

Who's the former F1 driver? Watch the video until the very end to get his identity.
