At roughly one-and-a-half mile long, driving through New York's Lincoln Tunnel during rush hour could take an everyday commuter an average of 15-20 minutes. But if you're Scottish former Formula One racing driver David Coulthard, the trip is apparently not as long.

Coulthard, the current Red Bull Racing Formula One Running Show Car driver, got through the tunnel in less than 30 seconds when he blasted through the tunnel at a breathtaking pace of 190 miles per hour.

The high-speed journey, which was captured from a camera in the car's cockpit, was performed in a shutdown Lincoln Tunnel. The stunt was in an effort to promote the upcoming Formula 1 races in New Jersey and New York.

The Grand Prix next June is not an official race yet," said Leo Parente, a former Formula 1 racer covering the event for Youtube's Drive channel. "Generally, Formula 1 races are not official until the beginning of the year, because local business or politics may interfere with planned races. Events like this are a way to build excitement for the race and keep it from being canceled."

Coulthard made his Formula One debut in 1994 and won 13 Grands Prix in a career spanning 15 seasons.
