Earlier this year at the Australian Grand Prix, there was a speed comparison test done that got little attention, but is still worth watching.
Check out this video of a Mercedes SL63 AMG, a V8 Supercar and a Formula One car (driven by David Coulthard) racing on the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit.
The V8 Supercar has more horse power, but the F1 car has the aerodynamics and handling and the Mercedes is just cool.
So who wins?
