Video: Jenson and Lewis build their F1 car

Button and Hamilton build their F1 car

We’ve all been there. A trip to your local Swedish furniture store means an afternoon of bits that don’t want to connect to each other and more than likely a pile of bolts left over at the end. We get bored; make a cuppa and start messing about.
