F1 Drivers Struggle with Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Drift Challenge

Offbeat

You’d expect F1 drivers to possess a full array of driving skills, but apparently not.

There's no doubting the skills of an F1 driver who has to make precise maneuvers at lightning-fast speeds, but when it comes to drifting they have nothing on the likes of Ken Block & Co. Seen here in Johnnie Walker's "Join the Pact, Never Drink and Drive" anti-drunk-driving campaign, F1 stars Mika Hakkinen and Jenson Button attempt to sign their initials on the tarmac using a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG as their writing tool. And how did they do exactly?

Although they're a talented duo when lapping the likes of Silverstone, but drifting is clearly not their forte. A doff of our cap for a noble gesture supporting a noble cause nevertheless.
