Sixteen-year-old Jeffri has Lotus F1 run

Malaysian Jeffri has driven an F1 car at age 16. Lucky lad...

Formula BMW contender Nabil Jeffri made a little bit of history today by driving a Lotus T127 at the age of 16, as these pics from the team show.

It was only a straightline test at Duxford aerodrome, but nevertheless it represents a pretty impressive effort by the Malaysian, who doesn’t turn 17 until October 24.

And if you are trying to put that into perspective, he was born on the very day of the 1993 Japanese GP, when Ayrton Senna launched his infamous assault on Eddie Irvine, and a certain Rubens Barrichello scored his first points.

So if you can remember that, then you are older than he is…
