We know Jenson and Lewis can drive but how much do they know about the mechanical aspect of their car?

This latest viral video from McLaren and Vodafone is quite entertaining. We see Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton being left by their mechanics to put together what looks like the 2008 McLaren from a load of parts.

It’s clear Hamilton has had a bit more practice with the tools than Button, taking control of the wrench! He says he always enjoyed taking things apart…though Button clearly doesn’t have confidence that he can put things back together! I wouldn’t want to be Gary, having to test this car!

It’s great to see the chemistry between the two Brits and they seem to be genuinely happy working together.

Is there a career as a mechanic when they hang up their drivers’ overalls? We’re not so sure. Don’t give up the day job boys!

The Gulf livery was once described by our diecast manager Leigh as being ‘the sexiest ever’. And who could argue with that. Well, all fans of the famous blue and orange will be delighted that we have added a handful of new Aston Martin Gulf items to our site. Ceck them out below, or click here to visit our Aston Martin section.
