Mark Webber appeared in front of a crowd of 40,000 at a Red Bull show in Naples on Saturday.
Speed limit restrictions at public events like this are far less strict in Italy than they are here in Britain, so Webber covered the 1.2km strip from Piazza della Repubblica to Piazza Vittori at speeds of up to 256kph (159mph).
The Red Bull running show car was also driven by Toro Rosso’s Sebastien Buemi.
