What a bunch of bullshit. That's not a Formula 1 driver, that's David Coulthard.

David Marshall Coulthard, MBE (/ˈkoʊlθɑrt/; born 27 March 1971, often known as DC, is a Scottish former Formula One racing driver.

Coulthard, who was born and raised in Twynholm, made his Formula One debut in 1994 and won 13 Grands Prix in a career spanning 15 seasons. Twice a winner in Monaco, Coulthard was team-mate to Mika Häkkinen in the Finn's two Drivers' Championship-winning seasons for McLaren Mercedes before helping establish the Red Bull team. His best Drivers' Championship finish was second in 2001.

After retiring from racing in Formula One, Coulthard continued to be involved with the Red Bull Racing team as a consultant, as well as joining the BBC as a Television commentator and pundit. He returned as an active driver in the DTM series for 2010, piloting a 2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class for Mücke Motorsport. He has finished in 16th position in the drivers championship in both years of competing in the series.

Give it a bit, the snark will eventually make it your way. After it overcomes the aerodynamic turbulence created by Coultard's enormous jawbone.

good vid except that for the act of god it must have taken to get permission to shut the tunnel for that they could have at least made a longer more detailed video.
Went to NY one time, in my green SL in fact, we went though that tunnel and probably averaged 3 MPH including the time stuck in traffic god knows how many feet underwater and trapped with scarry looking kind of people you always read about in national news.
(and no guns allowed in NY )
