From Formula 1 to the Australian V-8 Supercar Championship Series, Jenson Button swapped cars with Craig Lowndes recently for a day of racing fun that entertained fans at the Mount Panorama track in Bathurst, Australia.
“There were a couple of corners that every time I got there I thought I was in the right place, and you’re not,” Button said. “But that’s what makes it such a special circuit. Most circuits I go to I can pick up within two laps. Here, you can see it taking a half a day.”

Craig Lowndes had a chance to drive the F1 car (while Button drove the V8 Supercar) and was impressed with the feel of the acceleration.
“The car power-to-weight ratio is quite amazing compared to a V8 supercar,” Lowndes said.
