The Marussia team is to appear on the Sky
show 'A League of their Own' this evening [Friday] with three comedians having the chance to sample F1 machinery at Silverstone.
Show host James Corden was joined by Jimmy Carr and John Bishop for the event, which saw them hit the track at the wheel of an F1 car for the first – and quite possibly only – time in their lives.
“Jimmy was so reckless,” Corden said. “They said if we weren't filming, Jimmy would have been sent home.”
The show, described as the 'most fun you can have your with clothes on', will air at 9pm.
“True to the show format, everyone had a huge amount of fun seeing James, John and Jimmy doing their best to drive a Formula 1 car and in fairness they didn't do a bad job,” Marussia team boss John Booth said. “I think everyone in the Marussia F1 Team is looking forward to seeing what should be a very entertaining show this evening.”
