Johnny FPV is best known for capturing some incredible areal shots of cars chases and drifting. His drone skills put him amongst the best in the world.

FPV drones are lightweight, compact and tiny, and are usually custom-built for either racing or getting very specific kinds of aerial shots. They are the fastest flying and agile drones on the planet, reaching speeds of up to 120 km/h.

Red Bull racing contacted Johnny to help assist in getting some world-class drone follow-shots of their Formula 1 car going around the track flat out. And, while they were at it, to have a race between the drone and the car.

At first, you might think that it's pretty unfair. After all, the Formula 1 car is way faster than a tiny FPV drone. But, the problem is that the car has to slow down substantially in the tight corners, and can only reach those top speeds on the straights. The drone, on the other hand, can corner like a housefly!
