  • The speed that the kart corners is remarkable. Lando is a madness confirmed.

    • Lies again? SKC SKP

    • The editor sped up Lando's shots and added Foley kart sounds. Makes it seem faster than it actually is. Great job F1 editor.

    • A 250cc kart is faster than an f1 car of the start....

    • @MkyFish Fash it was for chesnoid gaming... As he or she apparently doesnt acknowledge any talent or skill to come trhough a thousand filters to ever reach f1 or professional top tier competitive level, saying that Lando's kart driving is a way to confirm this hypotesis is just ridiculuous comparing to even watching one quali of what he is capable of on season races. It just amazes me how regular people underestimate sportsmen life and effort and continuously test them for "confirmation" whilst having any authority to even ask.

    • @Cristian Molina who is this comment directed at? What are you referring to? 🤔

  • This shows just how hard these types of karts are to drive, they're certainly no joke.

    • Hello viewers

    • First time on a kart🤪

    • They stick great until they don't

    • would help to call a reporter that actually knows how to drive.

    • They arent hard to drive. Try yourself before making a comment.

  • I would love to see a Kart race between all the F1 team principals.

    • @blu 006 wdym? Toto is car fanatic mate just like basically all of the team principles.

    • Robert Kubica would win!;)

    • @Alejandro Gil Dont forget Zac Brown, also a former driver.

    • Unfair, some are actual professional drivers while others aren't

    • Hahahaha brilliant!

  • Man it’s crazy how fast these F1 drivers and professional Kart drivers are. If you’ve ever done Karting it really does always feel like your gonna lose the Kart at any moment but it sticks. It also is very easy to lock up or spin the thing if you give it just a bit too much brake or throttle at the wrong time. I give credit to these young Jrs who compete. It’s not easy.

    • They are quick but after driving one for about 10 minutes you start to get used to how it handles and can push it to the limits. In another timeline I'd have loved to race karts

    • I find that whenever the rear breaks out, I automatically correct for it by counter-steering and/or letting up on the throttle.. Just something I can feel in the seat of my pants, and don't even need to think about it. I've only ever spun out once in all the karting I've done and that was because of (too) late braking in an inspiralling 270 degree hairpin.

    • @weird stonk The thing with kart brakes is that theres a LOT of leeyway in the brakes, about 95% of pushing the brakes is just closing the gap between the pad and the rotor, the other 5% is the actual braking point, so you have account for the slack, get rid of it quickly, and still get to the braking threshold. Its easy once your used to it but as a newbie it take s a while, locking up is also much easier to do

    • That's what counter steering is for :)

    • Thank you

  • The off season content we want

  • Lando's face is so young that I would probably think that he's still in the go cart championship after this video uploaded lol

    • many people in their 20s race in the karting championships

    • @Damar Fadlan OK?

    • F1 changed the rules after he became a driver. Not sure what league he'd be stuck in with the new rules, but I don't think they like a teenager making others look bad.

    • Fr, just looking for the thumbnail I thought this was an old Lando Norris kart video

    • Gillete is his sponsor, so we won't see him soon with beard.

  • I would like to see a Kart GP round Monaco GP circuit with the F1 drivers. It would be a much more exciting event than the normal F1 race round there.

  • just an idea, why don't you get all the drivers together for a kart race?

    • @Chivs because everyone else would do it just for the love of racing

    • @Dee Bow tbf I can understand why Lewis wouldn’t do it. He probably hasn’t driven a kart in over a decade and you know if he doesn’t do well he would receive a ridiculous amount of abuse with people saying “see I told you it’s just the car.” Why would he put himself through that? 😂

    • @Wietse op de Weegh Yeah definitely

    • @Will B I'm not desputing they're fast, I'm just saying F1 drivers don't need that long to get up to pace in a kart since most of them have multiple world championships in karting and some F1 driver do drive other stuff and are just as succesful in them.

    • @Wietse op de Weegh They can’t compete against the top kart drivers unless they train for it and practice for several weeks. Top kart drivers are insanely fast

  • No matter how many times you watch it, just trying to replicate what Lando did would be impossible!

    • @J Nail on the head there. Getting into F1 not only depends on your skill, but also on your financial position, and a great deal of luck. I know there are F1 champions who started whith nothing, but I will point out they've been extremely lucky to make it all the way because most do not, while a billionaire can just put his son in an F1 car "Here you go son, have fun".

    • @Ronan Doherty The first time I got in a kart, by the 5th lap I was putting down times only 3-4 seconds slower than the track record. I knew I had/have a knack for driving, but I didn't expect to be so fast so quickly. Now when I go karting I'm usually 1-3 seconds slower than the track record. I'd love to go up against a pro driver to see what I could improve.

    • @Kena Lando races in the senior class so the kart is a second a lap faster than mine

    • @Niko it’s the highest level in the country

    • @0hVanny Well the fact you didnt say that earlier if you tell the truth

  • this was wholesome now we wanna see all the presenters racing each other ^^ make it a yearly thing

    • @Doctor Onishi's Psychosis Lab Exactly. This is great content

    • @John Smith LOL My perspective was that the pros are spending time with the production crew. creating new content, a bit like a family. No idea what your on about.

    • Wholesome? Barretto is an embarrassment, an identity token. Now Norris has zero respect for him.

  • Would love to see todays F1 driver lineup do a karting race

    • @Missouri mongoose "Ariel Adam" lol

    • @Michael Schneider lulu fanboy

    • It would be cool to see a Monaco race with everyone having a Ariel Adam car lol

    • @Michael Schneider I don't know. I'd figure the person with the most recent karting experience would win.

    • Yeah it would pretty cool. Would rather see that then sprint racing.

  • Karting is the purest form of motorsport, love it.

    • @Paul Michael Freedman right. but the chassis and engine are the core parts of a car. all cars have steering wheels, brakes, axles etc. but I was just listing the 2 main things

    • @Luciano Morano Brakes would be nice too

    • @Rennat 99 The pure stuff always costs more *wink wink*

    • ​@Rennat 99 a TAG class kart set up can be bought for around $5000 usd

    • @Rennat 99 lol. the top teams do spend a bit. but its pure in the sense that its raw. f1 has suspension and a bunch of engine modes and other gadgets. karting is just the chasis engine and driver and nothing else. its the purest

  • My lack of fear when Karting is always outweighed by my lack of talent.

  • I used to race provincial class touring cars (what they call "Improved Production" these days) in Western Canada, and what impressed me the most about Lando's sheer ability is just how early on the throttle he is at the hairpin that they are filming from. He brakes hard in a straight line (the way you're supposed to, get 99% of the braking done before the corner), but his absolute sense of where the grip is and the smooth but very rapid application of throttle so he's WOT 3/4's of the way around the bend is just... I mean, I'm sitting here, having raced karts, having done intermediate level closed wheel racing, thinking "I can't do that. I never could do that, and I raced those things..." 😮

    • It's not a single hairpin, it's a sharp apex that opens up substantially. Most of his turning is done very early because of this and he's back on the throttle early

    • He's likely never completely off the throttle, you want to keep the revs up in the 2 strokes. They are also solid rear axle, so you are often trail braking to twist the chassis and get the mechanical grip required to corner at those speeds. No diff, so your inside rear works against you if you're not initiating some of your turn in via braking to unload that wheel more than you would in a sprung car with a differential. All the grip in these 125cc 2-strokes is mechanical, so perfecting it makes you faster. The tires make a distinct sound when done right, which you can hear from Lando's kart at the hairpin. The pitch of it varies based on speed. You can see him using the braking into the hairpin and even a slight move off the line to set up this action into the apex, like an extremely gentle and controlled Scandinavian flick, just to start rotating the kart early. He's on the gas when he is because it helps plant the kart into that attitude where it makes the highest amount of grip. That's why the handling seems magical when you see pros doing it. You honestly want to have the kart rotated for apex before you even get to apex whenever you are able to carry speed in.

    • Karts are not cars. There's no hard breaking in karting

  • This Lawrence Barretto guy looks promising, Mercedes should sign him when LH retires.

    • @morten grue it's a joke mate.

  • Great video, would be nice to see something similar but this time with an F1 fan or anyone that does go karting more often than Lawrence

    • 25 second lag on a 49 second lap? That is toooo much, that second guy have never raced karts before, as it seems. A decent amateur, who races karts some 6-12 time a year would probably be under a minute per lap or even smth around 55 seconds

    • Watch when Lando raced against the guy who runs the ‘Super GT’ channel. He’s a decent amateur driver and it’s much closer. Even so Lando is still on a different level of course.

    • @Diana Benitez you got a link?

    • Check out SuperGT's video with Lando

  • Would have been a bit more interesting if Lawrence took a few hours to get used to the kart first.

    • I dunno, I mean do you automatically dismiss a football commentator if they never showed any talent playing the game. If there were two inexperienced racers commentating I understand your point but that's why they always have an ex racer partnering them.

    • @ArmorMaciek I raced Go Karts 100 and 125cc for10 years. No way you jump in and get something out of it. It needs a lot of hours and practice. LN will always be faster, but not with such a gap!

    • @Damo T I think Barretto can't drive at all. I think he would lose to 9 out of 10 "normal" people...

    • @Zé Miguel you absolute simpleton 😂 yes these karts have somewhat of extra power.. I was not saying baretto should know the apex and perfect braking points… but making your career about giving commentary regarding the fastest drivers on the planet while not even having the capability of pushing the throttle in a go kart on a straight is laughable.. I’m not mad, I’m actually feeling sorry for that simple man and everyone defending him. You don’t need to be a top driver to comment about the top tier division in driving, but if you are incapable of pushing a little go kart to 80 mph on a straight you are disqualified for having any opinion about racing drivers, because he lacks any understanding.

  • the way Lando was worming up his tires was just insanity

  • What an experience this must have been! Wish I could be there. 🔥🔥

  • I would love to see how Lando stacks up in these karts against someone like Lewis or Max

    • @Elias Raoufi max would gap both he is karting even now xd

    • Gap would most likely be within tenths

  • Lando’s talent is out of this world! Huge respect to all professional drivers who compete at this level.

  • "Any advice?" Lando: "Don't Crash" 10/10 advice

    • I would have died if he said “If you can keep me behind… P1”

    • Lawrence: Crashes

  • I remember the first time I went Karting, when I was 18, there was a younger kid in our group and this kid was roughly 5s a lap faster than us and we were just gobsmacked on an indoor track where we were lapping 28-29s this kid was smashing 23-24s It really just shows the pace differential from the average person in karts

    • @Lars zeker waar

    • @HollandBest ja vanaf het midden is t prima maar stel dat je uit het noorden komt is het best ver maar goed dichterbij dan zon beetje de rest van de wereld

    • @Lars lekker dichtbij

    • @Joey-A. · Nederland...

    • @Lars are you from Belgium? I want to race you 😂

  • Great content! Love getting to know more about drivers personalities and skills

  • They should do a kart race with the F1 Grid, to see who is really the fastest in equal machinery!!

    • @graham w this wasn't meant as offense against Hamilton. Thing is almost all of them were Kart champions once, that's why it would be so interesting. I would think Max or George would probably win but you can't really predict, it would be so exciting

    • Don't forget Hamilton was a champion kart driver, as a youngster. 😉

    • This has happened, hasn't it?

  • Karting is one of the purest forms of racing, a great driver really makes the difference! Thanks F1 for sharing this kind of content, love it!

    • that's how it looks from the outside....

  • I'd love to see a karting race with all F1 drivers. It'd be the greatest spectacle 😂

  • I did 40 minutes of karting at the Bahrain course and was thoroughly exhausted. The g's and strength/endurance it took were enormous. Props to the F1 athletes.

  • I wish I could see F1 organise a charity event where the current drivers go karting against each other. Same equipment, no team, no team orders just plain old racing.

  • I just learned that Lando has his own Carts(“Karts”) and his own carting program all over the world.. he better be fast on a Cart he designed 😅

    • he didn't design it OTK did

    • In the Video the Karts were SUPERfast!

  • Oh man, I love karting so much. Every time I feel like the kart is at the absolute maximum levels of grip, I can give it maybe 2% more and it still holds. It makes me so scared going into the fast, full throttle corners with walls around me, but getting out of the kart and seeing your name at the top of the week's leaderboards is a great reward!

  • Nice video!! Bring more kart content! Really nice to see F1 Drivers at the category that they all started 🏎🔥👍🏼

  • Whenever I go karting my best lap time is usually 1-3 seconds slower than the track record, depending on track length. I'd love to go up against a couple of pro drivers to see how much faster they would be than I am and what they do differently to be faster.

  • Lando! So cool watching Lando hustle a kart. Makes me want to get out and drive too!

    • @Max Factor Drive a Go-Kart. Plus, what's wrong with pushing an old beater car around a track? Sounds like a whirl of a time to me.

  • Would liked to have seen a fan go against Lando. This video had me wondering how far behind I'd be behind Lando if we started on the same lap. (Granted I weigh 90lbs more than him, so I'd need a slightly more powerful kart).

  • This young karter, Norris, seems to be a great driver. I think he has a shot at getting into F1 in a few years!

  • Oh man, i’d love to try one of those karts. That looked like so much fun.

    • @JoVi []_[] ehh. not really. sure they have there's fine tuned and setup right but it doesn't make a huge difference. also they were using OK motors which are super expensive. so you wouldn't go as fast but even an X30 would blow your pants off. Ive raced in both, and OK is better but for you it wouldn't make a difference. you just have to go to the right track (not indoors) and use a 2stroke

    • @Luciano Morano There is a big difference between the gokarts we mere mortals get to use and try when we spend big money for an hour at the track, and the karts that pro drivers use like that one :)

  • Very nice video . Congrats to both . Its really amazing as many ppl comment how the F1 & pro drivers can drive so fast. Well done guys.

  • I'd love to challenge Lando on the go-kart track. No matter if he overlaps me or not. It would be just great fun and for sure unforgettable experience for me. In any case - see you in Baku on next Azerbaijan GP. ;) Chief Pit-Exit Marshal / Baku City Circuit.

  • I think sim racing really helps just making yourself comfortable on a track. My first time karting was last year after 3 years of sim racing. I was less than a second off my local tracks record my very first time and was blasting through everyone else

  • Great idea for a mini-series! 🤩

  • Yeah, at my first time (and last so far) karting my experienced friend was beating us regularly on each lap, sporting times couple secs faster, it was incredible how much confidence this guy had, especially that kart was really hard to break and to steer.

    • I would find it hard to brake, but easy to break :)

  • Next do a ten lap race with the team principals after 30 min practice and 10 min qualifying session. Perhaps surprise them with a reverse grid and we’ll have a PPV worthy event!

  • Lando is such a lad 😂 love it, I'd love to try this hahah

  • I hope Lando has a car to challenge for wins next season

    • Talk about a comment that aged like milk ...

    • Oof

  • I feel like the main issue Lawrence had was that he was taking line like you would in a car. Karts are supposed to slide, if the tyres aren't squealing, you're not taking the corner fast enough. He just didn't seem to have the trust in the karts cornering ability.

  • Do that kind of challenge looks fantastic! It sounds loads of fun, although even I up against a professional Formula 1 race car driver. They'll beat me as well.

  • I was expecting around 1 minute flat mark from Lawrence.. Driven a couple of old single speed karts myself cuz that's all we have access to, that looked a bit underwhelming IMO. Lando was epic though! Wouldn't expect any less from a World Champion! 👏

    • That bloke is so slow. Stick to commentary.

  • Did the guy against Lando have any performance driving experience at all? He drives the way I'd expect my mom to drive. I'd be interested to see an amateur grassroots racer, someone who is at least comfortable pushing the limits of grip, try the same challenge.

  • Lawrence is one of the most likeable characters in the paddock. He just seems like a geniunelly nice guy

  • This is premium content, more of this please!

  • Lando breaking on his final laps like a boss

  • I wonder how I would get involved in one of these. I’d love to do this.

  • I can't wait to see Lando win his 1st F1 championship

  • This is amazing content!! I want F1 back soon please

  • More karting content please, we need a race between the drivers

  • I watched Lando going around thinking I accidentally sped up the ID-tv playback speed. It looks unreal. His speed is amazing.

  • Would be great to see Lando against Louis Hamilton in karts!

  • I'm suprised that a lot of pepole here are suprised that F1 drivers are that incredibly fast in karts. I mean what did you expect? These guys are the fastest in the world

    • And also they started their careers in karting haha, most of them as early as 5 or 6 years old

  • I used to do gokarts when I was a kid. The trick to go fast is to not think about it just feel the track. Then lap by lap start taking the corners faster, and thats pretty much it. Sooner or later you're gonna feel which lines is best for taking the corners at maximum speed.

  • Lando is really thriving in his part time career

  • Nothing against Lawrence... but you could have picked random fans or so many other people from the paddock who would give a better representation or comparison

    • Looks like he’s never driven a car before

    • @Slayer_99 very annoying*

    • I was thinking maybe a 8-9 second deficit, but 25 seconds is absolutely insane XD

    • Guy's pretty annoying too tbh

  • Lando must be tired of hearing from non-professional drivers “how hard can it be driving around a circuit”. He was ruthless.

  • Love the LN branded overalls 🔥

  • Firstly I like Lawrence and his reporting but what this proves is that Lawrence has a very limited driving ability or that he wasn't trying. We all know how talented lando is but Lawrence wasn't even flat on the straights, I never heard him hit max RPMs and he simply can't corner. I'd love to see the comparison against someone with at least ordinary driving talent.

  • Just imagine the amount of pressure on you while racing an F1 driver while an entire crew is filming you.

  • I do want to say i liked the quadrant version better!! But this one is also great!🥰

  • i once had the confidence to go fast but it all changed when the two right wheels goes into the sky a little bit and almost crashed lol, now im haunted by that fear when going top speed

  • I wanna see a kart race with people from the current grid. That would be awesome!!!

  • That was so exciting to watch and fun.

  • The thing I want added to F1 the most is a go kart race where all drivers have Raul karts and the winner gets 1 point for the driver’s title

  • The F1 should do a kart event with the F1 drivers with equal go kart for everyone. Like the one there was senna and prost.

  • Would be more interesting to see how a driver of F1, FE, Indy, GT, Prototype, and Kart, would compare. Instead of a writer vs a F1 driver

  • Now lets put the other 19 drivers in one of those and see who's really the fastest.

    • @Herr K ?

    • The results would be surprising...for Hamilton fans anyways.

    • @Sven Luketić probably still the drivers in the karts since its a small track with lots of tight corners that f1 cars just wouldnt really be that effective at

    • Now lets put 19 drivers in one of those and Hamilton in F1 car and see who's really the fastest.

  • Would have been nice to see more competition for Lando

  • "Just a casual two years." Lando claimed championship in his second year in carting

  • Attempting to replicate what Lando did, no matter how many times you watch it, is impossible!

  • Having driven karts (not professional level karts like these), I'd like to think I'd do better against a Pro like Lando but that may just be wishful thinking lol.

    • no trust me, these karts are ridiculously hard to drive.

  • I never drove that type of engine before, I have seen it and it must be a big learning curve when it’s engine braking and then let’s lose, basically a moment of lose on entry for every corner. I raced a rotax, shifter, and slower Briggs stuff and none of them do that. Only that type of engine they were running.

  • 2:45 exactly lol. I had the same thoughts for years until now. I bought a steering wheel last week just to try how it feels. Im done 😂

  • 3:06 I think it’s something to do with the way they are inside their minds: like the consciousness vs the body; one is willing to fail, the other afraid to die. I think it’s an internal balancing act between those two forces that allow them to drive as they do.

    • They are willing to fail only beacause the mistakes are not that big anymore with great experience & skill, plus they know how to correct them

    • Not sure if I can back up your assessment. However, I do remember Lando watching the recently posted 2021 season reactions and saying something like "I risked my life in that corner" while smiling like if he was remembering a fond memory. These people are willing to risk life and limb for a pass and they do it on the regular and they LIKE it.

    • @just yeet the chicane absolutely, probably what allowed them to get the balancing act right

    • Willingness to fail is a key thing. You can't know where the limits are without having exceeded them often enough to become familiar with where exactly the limit is. I'm terrified of drifting even in a PC racing simulator.

    • It's also the fact that drivers like Lando have done this since they were like.. 6 years old, so he knows exactly what he's doing when you would wake him up in the middle of the night and put him in a kart

  • Love to see the LN Kart brand and racing overalls

  • No way! My favorite f1 app writer was kind enough to spend some time with his fan! So humble.

  • It is incredible how fast pro drivers are

  • Class act that Lando, as was the host

  • Lando is incredible!

  • Norris is a class act!!

  • I’d like to see an f1 driver against a karting driver. I’d still expect f1 driver to win, but I’d be interested to know how close they’d be.

  • This puts into perspective how far ahead a F1 driver is against us mere wannabe showoff drivers.

  • it´s a shame that they don´t organice a race beetwen drivers, just imagine alonso, ricciardo, lando, and max fighting each other in this cars! this would be amaizing.

  • Such a great driver, Lando.

  • I’d only dream to race this race!! I won’t even give myself a lap head start..head to head Lando!! Come and get me!!

    • trust me, tho karts are so hard to drive.

  • Need the whole Weekend Warm-Up team to kart in at least a few races.

  • Straight up incredible.

  • dang that guy tried to shake Lando’s hand in the beginning 🤣

    • @Gurin Jeimuzu dang

    • @Asznee Vevo Lawrence talks with his hands. It was definitely not asking for a handshake. Lando also knows him fairly well so I doubt he'd be that cold even if he did try to

    • @Asznee Vevo 0:21? That was no handshake mate. That was just pointing to who he was talking about. Just a part of the introductory speech.

    • @Lozy yeah that's what i thought

    • no he didn't he just was expressing himself with his hands

  • I hear Barreto's engine coming off revs going into the turn bfore he seems to be really breaking. "B" try to be much more aggressive going into the turns and brake a lot later. :-)

  • Seems almost cruel really but these guys really are the masters of karting.

    • @BigFire Think I’ve seen that one actually. I was told a story at my local kart track that a guy was winning a few races well ahead of the pack and thought he was going somewhere, until he tested the same day as George Russell who drove circles around him.

    • You should check out a video with Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris going out karting. The rest of the field might as well be mobile chicane.

  • Great experience man but still you should have given it a whole lot more bro, that's a once in a lifetime experience, got to make the most of it

  • Couldn’t stop thinking about the flat spot on the tyre he must’ve created by the skid. I think the technicians at 5:11 were thinking the same haha

  • Maybe not overly fast but Larry looked like he was loving it out there. gg
