LEWIS HAMILTON went toe to toe with a JET in his Mercedes Formula One car ahead of the United States Grand Prix.
The British racing driver, 37, may have struggled in the 2022 Merc with no race wins so far this season.
But he showed he had total control of his F1 machine on an open runway – as he filmed himself racing the aeroplane.
Hamilton recorded the incredible battle from his cockpit.
He started off by pulling the visor down on his purple helmet and then getting off to a flying start, making up good ground on the jet.
But the pilot forced their way back before the pair were equally matched speeding down the track.
And once the aircraft got up to the required pace, it suddenly took off and lifted into the air before swooping round and straight over Hamilton’s head in crazy scenes.
Hamilton wrote on Instagram: “Racing the jet was so mad, had to record it for myself. Hope you enjoyed the ride.”
Fans flooded the comments section with their replies loving the video.
One said: “Driving a Formula 1 car with one hand on the wheel and the other one recording the JET he is RACING AGAINSTâ¦ Sir Lewis, you are truly a living legend.”

Another wrote: “The pure skill, recording and driving simultaneously.”
And a third added: “The engineering involved in both of these machines is incredible.”
Hamilton will start tonight’s Grand Prix in Texas third on the grid.
He qualified 0.6s behind pole-sitter Carlos Sainz while Sergio Perez and Charles Leclerc both took grid penalties for new parts.
