Jamie was just 19 years old, when he drove for the Torro Rosso team in the Hungarian Grand Prix this year.


As well as breaking the record as the youngest ever F1 driver previously held by Mike Thackwell, he also became only the seventh teenager to start a Formula One race.


Despite a mechanical failure, which meant qualifying in last place, he went on to finish in fifteenth place, and ahead of his teammate.


The SEAT Leon Cupra R is a potent three-door hatch, with 194kW driving through the front wheels. It will do 250km/h and 0-100km/h in 6.1 seconds.


It may not be F1 style quick, but Jamie is said to very happy with his new daily drive.
