F1 Car Makes Real Pit Stop In Downtown London

Illustration for article titled F1 Car Makes Real Pit Stop In Downtown London

At 5:00 AM GMT today, Red Bull's Mark Webber whooped his F1 car through London's Parliament Square and made a pit stop in front of the House of Parliament. Big Ben, meet righteous noise. Righteous noise, meet Big Ben.

As publicity stunts go, driving race cars through populated urban areas early in the morning isn't that bad. Sure, this sort of thing has been done before. Yes, Red Bull seems to like weird stunts. And yes, Mark Webber has a funny chin. Who cares? This is an RB5 tootling through one of the coolest cities in the world. Someone, somewhere, was probably roused out of bed by an unearthly WHOOP WHOOP WHAOMP. That's good enough for us.
