Driving an F1 car for the first time: Tom Gamble's McLaren test

The 2018 McLaren Autosport BRDC Award winner Tom Gamble drove a Formula 1 car for the first time at Silverstone recently as part of his prize. Gamble has spent the 2019 season competing in the Blancpain GT World Challenge Europe series for the WRT squad in an Audi R8 LMS. Although Aston Martin has since taken over as an Award partner, McLaren returned to the grand prix venue to run Gamble in the ex-Jenson Button MP4-28 from 2013. The Ginetta Junior champion and BRDC British Formula 3 race winner completed an installation lap, followed by four runs of flying laps in the 2.4-litre V8 car. He told Autosport: “It’s such a good car. I knew it’d be fast, but I didn’t think it would be that fast! “Everything, the speed is phenomenal, the braking, the aerodynamics. It’s awesome. I just want to keep going. It’s so good, such a good car. A massive thanks to McLaren for giving me the opportunity.” “When I saw the [pit]-in board, I said, ‘I might just keep going’ – see what they say.”
