TopGear video teaser – Kimi: “Oops!”


During the latter hours of Wednesday morning, Kimi took part in the filming of one of the world’s most watched television programmes: Top Gear.

There was a noticeable chill in the air when Kimi arrived in the South-East of England, having jetted in from his home in Zurich for the day to drive a rather abused ‘Reasonably Priced Car’ around the legendary Top Gear test track.

After meeting the Stig – and trying to deduce who the latest driver to take that moniker might be – Kimi was shown the test track then let loose in the front wheel drive family runabout. Declaring the car ‘better than expected’, he explored the levels of adhesion, confirming that understeer and oversteer were both present in plentiful quantities when provoked. With the track learnt, the stopwatches were started. Kimi set a time of…. well, you’ll have to watch the programme to know that!

With the on-track action wrapped up, it was time to face one of Britain’s most renowned broadcasters: Jeremy Clarkson. Relaxing on the bench style leather car seats in front of an audience of around 400 fans lucky enough to be selected from the ten-year long waiting list to watch filming, Kimi’s appearance was certainly memorable, but we’re not going to give away any more than that.

Make sure you tune in to BBC TWO this coming Sunday at 20:00 UK time.

  1. Kimi seems to be very relaxed. I think Kimi will not beat Vettel’s time, because track was wet. But anyway, now we know, that Stig is not Kimi 🙂 Even though they both don’t speak a lot 🙂


  2. Hahaha he is so laidback, I was kinda shocked to hear Clarkson tell Kimi about Stig: “do you realise you are his hero?”

    Such a shame that the track was wet 😦 But it’s funny how Kimi is just looking around and pretty much cruising on his lap 🙂


  3. Oh you lucky UK people.. 🙂 can’t wait to see the show.. have to hope on somebody putting it up somewhere.


  4. oh man…He’s so cool….
