Watch: This is what happened when F1 champion Lewis Hamilton took on Rally driver Ken Block

Formula One star Lewis Hamilton squared off against Rallycross driver Ken Block this weekend in a special contest at The Top Gear Live World Tour.

Hamilton, who’s currently at the top of the F1 standings, raced in a Mercedes AMG F1 car, while Block took to the track in a Ford Fiesta rally vehicle.

In order to even out the contest both men competed on largely different trails that suited their vehicles, but did manage to meet at a small intersection.
