Nico Hulkenberg got a brief taste of driving Renault Formula 1 machinery and we can watch his first laps in 360 degrees.

As we all know, Hulkenberg has ditched Force India orange for Renault yellow this season and he’s already tried out one of the F1 team’s cars.

The German driver sampled last year’s Renault RS16 at the Valencia circuit (no, not the terrible street track) in Spain.

Renault strapped a 360-degree camera to the car for our viewing pleasure. This video is definitely best watched on mobile!

This year’s Renault F1 car will be launched on the 21 February.
