It can be sometimes hard to imagine just how fast a Formula One car is. You think "well I've driven a Volkswagen GTI once, and I can imagine it being twice as fast as that." If you want to know how fast an F1 car is, look at how calm Fernando Alonso is while pounding a Ferrari F12 around the Nurburgring.
In case you're forgetting the insanity that is the Ferrari F12 because you don't write for Jalopnik and thus don't alternate between that and an Oscar Meyer Weinermobile every day, just last week Jeremy Clarkson actually said it was "too powerful." This, coming from the man that uses POWERRRRR as a catchphrase.
