Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton build an F1 car

As you know, I'm a keen student of viral videos; not many people do them well in F1 and there have been plenty of poor ones.

I quite like this latest effort from McLaren and Vodafone. They have done some lame ones, but the one where the two blokes build a remote control device and persuade McLaren to let them use it to drive a real F1 car was funny.

This one shows Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton, left to their own devices by their mechanics, building what looks like a 2008 McLaren from a pile of parts.

There is some good chemistry and good humour here, which is what these things should be all about. The link to Vodafone is a bit tenuous, but it's entertaining. It's clear that Hamilton has far more of a feel for the spanner than Button, who asks at one point, "Did you do any work on your own kart?" because clearly he didn't!

Check it out and let me know what you think.
