WilliamsF1 Teammates Tackle Silverstone in a Caterham Seven

WilliamsF1 drivers Mark Webber and Alex Wurz took a break from their day jobs racing and testing their team's Formula 1 car to jump in the saddle of a Caterham Seven CSR260 for hot laps around Silverstone. With F1 Racing magazine's Peter Windsor riding shotgun and covering the event, the two put the ultra-light and very quick (0-60 in 3.1 seconds) sports car through its paces on the British grand prix circuit.

Both drivers pushed the Caterham to its limits in what had to be utterly exhilirating rides for the journo sitting in the passenger seat. Peter Windsor recounts the whole experience in the July '06 issue of F1 Racing, which is on sale now. If you're in the UK, you should be able to pick it up at your local newsstand. US readers should head to their local Borders or similar mega-bookstore and prepare to shell out 8 to 10 bucks.
