Video: Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button try to assemble a McLaren Formula 1 car |

Back in the day, Formula 1 racing was a pretty simple affair, as many people just brought their own cars and handled the mechanics on their own or with the help of a few friends.

Now, the motorsport competition has come a very long way from its humble origins.

In order to highlight the importance of a specialized team, McLaren’s main sponsor, Vodafone, tasked the team’s two drivers and former F1 champs Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button with assembling the MP4-25 race car without the help of their team.

As you can imagine, even with one F1 title under their individual belts, things didn’t go as planned. Check out the hilarious video after the jump.
