    Having driven and raced a variety of vehicles from Karts to muscle cars, I consider myself a decent driver. This single lap of the 2011 Monaco Grand Prix by Red Bull team racer Sebastien Vettel just made me realize how far from a real race car driver I am.

    While onboard videos of racing have been around for a while, this is one of the most talented F1 drivers in the game today taking a lap in pole position, with nothing in front of him to limit his speed. The results are an incredible minute and a half of pure speed and skill.
