Assetto Corsa

WATCH: Will an F1 car work with front-wheel-drive?

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if a Formula 1 car was front-wheel-drive? Well, wonder no more, as John conducts a little experiment…

Using Assetto Corsa, we’ve reversed the driven axles in an F1 single-seater, with all of the glorious V6 turbo hybrid power being fed to the front wheels. Think of it as a Ferrari SF70H touring car – God forbid Maranello made a vehicle with such a compromised drivetrain layout!*

Watch as John wrestles the understeering beast around Mugello and then against the AI. Let us know in the comments below if you’d like to see more Assetto Corsa weirdness on the channel.

*Yes, the Ferrari SF90 can be driven in front-wheel-drive electric mode, clever clogs.
