Life In 360°: A Debut Lap

I said some time back that slowly, but surely on Life In 360° we were collecting all the various Formula 1 teams. Not only that but F1 seems to be in a bit of a competition as to how often they can feature on this particular VRFocus segment. Well if you’re in the corner of the gentlemen from the electric powered formula I’m afraid you’re going to be disappointed today. As Friday’s trip into 360 degree video comes from the Renault Sport Formula One team.

The video, released at the end of January shows new driver acquisition Nico Hülkenberg (formerly of the Force India team) putting last season’s car, the R.S.16, through its paces over at the the Valencia race circuit in Spain. As it happens the footage is of Hülkenberg’s very first lap behind the wheel of a Renault. Nice of them to stick a 360° camera on it before he headed out isn’t it?

According to reports the 2017 car will be revealed at the end of the month, and we should see a flurry of announcements before the new season begins. Who knows, we might even get some more 360 degree videos. Should we do so expect them to be part of a future Life In 360° post. Until then VRFocus will be back on Monday with another showcase of 360 degrees in action.
