Jenson Button, McLaren-TAG MP4-2C, Goodwood Festival of Speed, 2010

The second day of the Goodwood Festival of Speed saw Formula 1 drivers past and present driving a selection of spectacular racing machines.

World champion Jenson Button drove Alain Prost’s McLaren which won the 1986 world championship while Mark Webber demonstrated last year’s Red Bull.

Bruno Senna drove his uncle’s last McLaren and HRT team mate Karun Chandhok was at the wheel of Keke Rosberg’s championship-winning Williams.

Jackie Stewart went up the hill in the same Lotus 38 that Jim Clark won the Indianapolis 500 with 45 years ago. And Mika Hakkinen got acquainted with a 1954 Mercedes W196.

John Surtees drove a Ferrari 158 which he won the world championship with in 1964.

Finally, Marc Gene and Nico Rosberg demonstrated two of last year’s cars. The latter was in the championship-winning Brawn BGP001 running in the colours Mercedes are using in F1 this year.

Check back here for more pictures later today as Jarno Trulli is set to take over Fittipaldi’s Lotus 72 and Button will be driving the 2008 McLaren-Mercedes MP4-23.

    I think it’s disgusting they’ve got the BGP001 in the Mercedes livery! Why? Am pretty sure they would have had enough spare parts with out that livery on!
