Mark Webber previews Barcelona Grand Prix on Red Bull simulator

Some of us are content with high-def video games, but for a team with an exponentially bigger budget like Red Bull, video games are about as high-tech as a wooden bicycle. No, these guys don’t roll like that.

What they have are race simulators and pretty awesome ones at that. On the lead-up to the Barcelona Grand Prix, team driver Mark Webber got to sit behind one of the mock RB25 race simulators to try to get acclimated with the circuit before the race this Sunday. That’s the kind of technology that’s pretty prevalent in Formula One and that you won’t be able to find in any other racing series in the world.

This is actually the second video brought to us by Red Bull. A little over a week ago we posted the video of Sebastien Vettel as he made his practice runs on the simulator.

As for the rest of us, being allowed to drive this simulator is completely out of the question so we’ll have to settle for just watching the video.

That was a fancy driving, I wonder how much money did the Red Bull spend to make this Simulator come to life.

You really think he’s the best driver this season? No love at all for Hamilton or Alonso? I can see writing off Button’s accomplishments to his team/car, but even Schumacher (this season) is at least as good.
