F1 holds its breath
Apr 26, 2009, 11:17 AM

Well.

Well.....not literally but we have just witnessed a new world record on the start finish line here in Bahrain, as the record for holding your breath under water was just broken by escapologist David Merlini. Not something you see every day..

Don't try this at home....

The new record stands at 21 minutes and 29 seconds. A tank of water was placed on the start finish line and Bernie Ecclestone led a delegation of team principals as well as the drivers, standing around waiting for the new record to be set.

The event was was staged by watchmaker Jacques Lemans, which has a deal with FOM to produce the official F1 watch.
