TG: Speaking of which, how was it racing against Lewis Hamilton at Top Gear Live in Barbados?
KB: Ever since I was a little kid, I've been a huge fan of Formula One. I've been to a few Formula One races and hung out with the teams, met Lewis, Kimi, Michael, most of the guys. I'm just a really big fan of those guys and their talent, what they do, the art of building a Formula One car.
So for me to be out on the track with one of those cars... honestly, it was one of the coolest things I've ever done. And to have Lewis's car screaming next to me, completely drowning out the noise of my car - drowning it out for me that is, sitting in my car with my helmet on - was great.
The funny thing is my car is actually quicker off the line than Lewis's, because it's got all-wheel-drive, so it was kind of fun to beat him to the first corner. That was pretty cool.
