Sebastian Vettel drives Renault Twizy F1: video

Three-time Formula 1 world champion Sebastian Vettel is first to sample the crackers Renault Twizy F1. Video here

The Renault Twizy F1 has been revealed in Spain. The crackers concept boosts the electric car – normally capable of an exceedingly modest 17bhp – to 97bhp via a KERS system borrowed from Renault-engined F1 cars, such as Sebastian Vettel’s Red Bull.
