Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg on dune buggies. Kimi Raikkonen on a lawnmower. Only Sky Sports F1…and certainly only Johnny Herbert.
In the third daily instalment of At Home with Sky F1, three-time GP winner Johnny looks back the most memorable four features he has been involved with since 2012 - two of which are all-time classics.
The Sand Grand Prix featuring the then-pally Mercedes team-mates against Johnny and Damon Hill in 2013, and the Lawnmower Grand Prix ahead of the 2014 British GP when Raikkonen took on a crack team from Sky F1 on probably the most unwieldy machine he has ever driven.
Hill and Herbert are then reunited in two more features - a unique retelling of the Vettel-Webber Multi-24 controversy one year on and then Johnny's return to racing at the Monaco Historique later that year.

The Lawnmower Grand Prix
Johnny: "Seeing Martin Brundle and Anthony Davidson kitted up on lawnmowers was quite an experience. But then Kimi turned up smiling and unperplexed and once he got on the lawnmower we thought 'we've got a little bit of issue here'.
