Video: Sebastian Buemi drives Red Bull F1 car at icy tracks of the Giles Villenueve circuit

Driving a car may be second nature to a lot of us, but even the most experienced of drivers would have second thoughts about driving a car on tack in icy conditions. Obvious danger notwithstanding, nobody in their right mind would even attempt to do such a thing, unless of course, they were a Formula One driver.

To promote the return of Formula One to the Giles Villenueve circuit in Montreal, Sebastian Buemi, a driver for the Toro Rosso Formula One team, took a stab at driving his Toro Rosso Red Bull F1 car on the icy track of the Villenueve circuit. Armed with a special set of tungsten-studded Bridgestone tyres, Buemi blasted through the circuit as if it was just another day of practice.

Just goes to show that when it comes to driving skills, there are those that are good at it, and there are those that are born with it.
