    Heart beat; thump, thump, thump, thup. Then come memories of driving this car before. On the track at Sendai Japan, at the Paul Ricard circuit, on the streets of Delhi and then, back home in Mumbai. I remember just how much power it can put cleanly down, I recall just how manically the turbo V6 motor pulls, and the way in which it rockets out of corners, that’s just special.

    We only have a handful of laps at India’s F1 circuit, but I still walk rather than run. This is a seriously fast car and I still have to discover where the braking points are on the track. The first hit of acceleration pins me to the back of my seat; the 0-100kph claimed time is 2.7 seconds, ladies. And soon, I’m reacquainted with the relentless thrust, well-connected steering and the friendly handling. And the faster you go, the lighter on its feet it feels; just amazing. How exactly does it allow you to carry so much pace into a corner? And those Brembo brakes, they feel super strong and deliver loads and loads of confidence.
