Coulthard swaps pit lane for cockpit

BBC F1 co-commentator David Coulthard swaps the pit lane for the cockpit as he takes a ride in a Royal Australian Air Force jet.

Coulthard, who completed a challenge with the Red Arrows last year, flew with RAAF pilot Tim Ireland ahead of the Australian Grand Prix earlier this month.

He compares the experience to driving an F1 car, saying that being on the road is a more "intimate" experience but flying a jet was "incredible".
