British racing driver Jake Dennis had a great opportunity at Silverstone this past weekend when he got behind the wheel of the RB8, the 2012 Red Bull Formula 1 title-winning car. 

The energy drink team popped a couple of cameras onto the car and let Dennis out onto the circuit and the footage is brilliant. 

Vettel won four consecutive races

The RB8 is a special car, it won seven grand prix from 20 starts between drivers Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber in 2012. Vettel, who went on to win the championship, set a record by winning four consecutive races. 

Dennis can count himself a lucky young man to put the RB8 through its paces. 

Have a look at the video below: 

Dennis posted a video of the RB8 screaming past with the caption: "Not a bad day in the office! ???? #SoundOn #F1 #Redbull".
