Anthony Davidson went to Silverstone to drive a Mercedes F1 car around a dazzling lap in the dark - with a festive twist.

Night races in Formula 1 require floodlights, something that the Silverstone Circuit currently doesn't have, so the British Grand Prix is not likely to turn into a night race anytime soon.

However, in line with the time of year, the track has been decorated with festive lights, so Mercedes sent their F1 simulator driver Anthony Davidson to complete an incredible 'Lap of Lights'.

Davidson, who is also a Formula 1 pundit, called it one of the craziest and scariest laps of his life.
