F1 driver Coulthard goes for a spin on Hyderabad road

F1 driver Coulthard goes for a spin on Hyderabad road
Formula One veteran David Coulthard and Lithuanian stunt-rider Aras Gibieza on Sunday participated in a Red Bull F1 show here.

Driving a Red Bull F1 car on the Tank Bund Road and twice around the Hussain Sagar lake, Coulthard reached a top speed of 282 kms per hour.

Onlookers applauded as they zoomed past. The 25-year-old old Aras, in particular, enthralled the crowd with motorcycle acrobatics.

The event was flagged off by the Tollywood actor Akkineni Nagarjuna.

Coulthard, a 13-time Grand Prix winner, had taken the car for a spin on Sea Link in Mumbai in 2009.

He later told the reporters that it was fantastic to be back in India.

“It’s always a special feeling to drive a Formula 1 car for the sheer thrill of the fans and it was incredible to take the car for a spin at such an iconic location.

“Going by the crowd reaction, they enjoyed the motorbike and the car. I enjoyed the opportunity to bring Formula 1 to the people again,” Coulthard added.

Aras too said he was quite excited. “It’s an impressive moment,” he said.
