Doing the rounds on social media at the moment is a video of what appears to be a Ferrari F1 car driving on a Czech motorway. Just to be clear, though, it’s actually a GP2 race car made to look like a Schumacher-era Ferrari F1 car.

Nonetheless, the low-slung, open-wheeled V8-powered car with no headlights or indicators is not road-legal.

As GP2 was a spec series, the chassis, major components and engine were all the same, and reports suggest this car was likely built by Dallara, packing a 4.0-litre V8 capable of around 600bhp. That’s a lot of power pushing around a lightweight carbon-fibre monocoque sardine can holding a driver with their head at bumper-level to everything else on the road…

It’s not clear what sort of tyres the GP2 car was riding on, but if they’re anything like real F1 tyres, there are a few very good, very dangerous reasons why that’s not a good idea on public roads…
