Sebastian Vettel Drives Ambulance in Epic Race Against Ferrari 488 GTB

Find out who wins in the video below

Normally, a race between a Ferrari 488 GTB and a 3-metric-ton ambulance would prove painfully predictable. But what if the driver behind the ambulance was four-time Formula 1 world champion Sebastian Vettel?

In one epic showdown, Vettel swaps places with emergency services driver Alex Knapton. With Vettel in the ambulance and Knapton in the Ferrari, it's time to see who can drive faster around one lap at the famous Bruntingthorpe track in the U.K. Obviously, the race couldn't be any more mismatched, given the 488 GTB produces 660 hp and the ambulance only produces about 116 hp.

It's not a close race, but both drivers seem to perform quite well on the track. One hits 2 minutes, 17 seconds while the other takes the crown with a time of 2:10:48.

The YouTube video is presented by Shell, which has been a partner of Vettel's team, Scuderia Ferrari, since the 1930s. Watch the video below to see who wins this epic race, but we bet you could guess anyway.
