Some people will tell you current Formula One cars are boring and just aren’t fast enough, well that didn’t stop the 2015 V6 turbo hybrids from nearly beating Kimi Raikkonen’s all-time speed record of 370.1 km/h (229.97 mph) from the 2005 Italian Grand Prix.

F1 cars were even faster at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez than they were in Monza, thanks to a huge start-finish straight and Mexico City’s high altitude reducing drag and downforce.

Factor in some DRS during the race and Sebastian Vettel, despite his miserable race, managed to hit a crazy 366km/h (227.4mph) during the race.

366 km/h!
