Former Red Bull Formula 1 driver David Coulthard visited Cape Town and enthralled thousands of fans when he drove the RB7 2011 championship-winning car down Darling street on earlier in June. 

But that wasn't the only cool activity he got up too. As part of a film for the energy drink company, Coulthard 'raced' a Cape Town taxi  around the streets of the CBD. 

And it seems he was so enamoured by the mini-bus taxi that he hopped into the front seat to jam with the driver and gaatjie (person who collects fares and attracts passengers). 

The concept for the video was created by Cape Town-based Iconic agency.
