Tom Cruise, producer and star of ”Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol”, which comes out in theaters on December 21, tested the Formula 1 Red Bull Racing in Southern California, having David Coulthard as instructor.
Cruise, a fan of motorsport, who has driven many racing cars over the years, but never a Formula 1 car, reached a top speed of 291 km / h, with only 4 km less than the maximum speed reached by Coulthard, after driving a 850-horsepower car around the 4 km circuit at Willow Springs, in Rosamond,California.
“Tom really knows his way. I was surprised that he learned so fast and he really is a perfect driver, ” said Coulthard.” His reactions were incredible, considering how complicated it is to drive aFormula 1 car. He’s a driving his car to the limit in daily life. Today was not monotonous. Tom really impressed me. ”
