MUST WATCH: Incredible Controllable 360º On-Car Footage of Mercedes F1 Car, E63 AMGs with Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg

Nico Rosberg Mercedes-Benz F1 W105 360º Video

This is awesome. Mercedes-Benz has released three controllable 360-degree videos of its 2014 Formula 1 car, the F1 W05, and two E63 AMG S cars as they lap Silverstone, and you can watch the incredible footage right here.

Shot using six cameras filming at 40 frames per second, the videos allow you to scroll left, right, up, and down as you ride out of the garage at Silverstone on the left side pod of Nico Rosberg’s F1 car. You can use your mouse to change the view, or download a dedicated app for iPad here (iOS 7.0 or later) and tilt away, as the gyroscope in your tablet controls the action.

You can also ride with Lewis Hamilton atop his Mercedes E63 AMG S sedan as it is caught and passed by an E63 AMG S wagon driven by Rosberg. Or ride with Rosberg as he drifts the wagon. The footage even includes directional sound—are you still reading? Because you shouldn’t be. Watch. Now.
