Felix Baumgartner, who leapt from space for Red Bull Stratos last year, swapped his high-tech skydiving suit for some race overalls recently in order to take a few laps in an Infiniti Red Bull Racing F1 car. Joined by Infiniti RBR drivers Sebastian Vettel and David Coulthard, Felix got a one-of-a-kind experience on the track in France.

To start the day, Vettel -- reigning F1 champion and Infiniti's Director of Performance -- took the record-breaking spaceman for a spin in a Vettel Edition Infiniti FX around the former home of the French Grand Prix. Then Felix got strapped into something seriously fast -- a three-seater Formula One car.

Of course, the speed wasn't too much of a worry for Baumgartner, who reached speeds of up to 800 mph for Red Bull Stratos. It was still a thrilliing ride by former Red Bull Racing driver Coulthard, who flew around the Paul Ricard circuit at full speed.
