Morris, who became the first person in F1 to drive the Mercedes-AMG GT3 in 2018, has set a new world record for fastest car ever driven by a Formula One driver, with his Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG GT1 set to lap the 60,000-mile mark.
The record was set last night by a Mercedes-BMW F1 team driver, Christian Horner, who set the new record for a Formula Renault 2.0-spec car with his Ferrari 458 Italia on Friday.
“This record has been set since I’ve been in Formula 1, so it’s nice to be able to get it for the first time,” said Morris, who has scored 10 podiums in his career.
“The GT1 car is a bit different, with a new front wing, the car’s a bit wider and a bigger diffuser.
It also has a longer exhaust pipe and new engine mounts.”
In the end, it was a bit of a gamble, because I think it would have been too much for the car to cope with it.
“I’ve been doing a lot of work on the car this season, but at the moment it’s a little bit too slow.”
For the record, I’m not really sure why the record was broken.
“The record will be broken at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez next weekend, when Morris will face fellow F1 driver Marcus Ericsson, who is the fastest driver in Formula Renault 3.5.
The Mercedes-Mercedes GT3 is a four-door GT1-spec version of the Mercedes SLS AMG, which has seen three seasons in Formula One.
The F1 teams are divided into two groups.
The top teams will get a driver from the top two teams in the world, while the second group will get either the second-place or third-place driver.
For the new drivers, the first step is to be fitted with the new carbon-fibre carbon fibre front wing.”
The wings are very light, and there’s no weight transfer. “
I love it, the way it fits together and how the carbon-filament structure is made.
The new wing also has the added benefit of reducing drag and heat, which will help to bring the car up to the required level of performance.””
We have to make sure that everything is very straight and smooth, so there’s a lot less drag.”

“We’ve worked on the new wing for three weeks and we’ve finally got it in shape for the race,” said Ericsson.
“The car is quite special for the fact that the driver gets to enjoy a lot more of the car, which is really important.”
It’s a really strong car.
It has quite a bit going for it, and it’s good to be in it.
“Morris will now have to settle for second place in the championship, behind reigning champion Sebastian Vettel.
