    Watch a unique 360-degree view of a Formula E car during the Miami ePrix in today's video.

    F1 currently dabbles in moving onboard cameras, and both Red Bull and Mercedes have tested 360-degree ones before, but here's Sébastien Buemi, teammate of eventual winner Nicolas Prost, in his e-Dams Spark-Renault pursuing one of the Virgin Racing cars during the race.

    Use the arrows in the top-left of the video to move the camera's view as you watch.

    Should motorsport feature more cameras like these? Comment below!

    @Radu Oros Sorry about that, the video has been reuploaded by its owner since we found it. The arrows option was there on the desktop version of YT, according to @Bram, but it might not be the same now.

    Works for me, you see up, down, left and right keys in the left top of the video that you can press to move the camera to various angles :)
