David Guetta Hits the Formula 1 Track in ‘Dangerous’ Music Video

David Guetta tries to win the Formula 1 championship in the music video for ‘Dangerous.’

French DJ David Guetta revealed his brand new single “Dangerous” featuring Sam Martin, and an epic seven-minute video to go with it capturing him as a Formula 1 racer going down the track alongside with actual F1 driver, Romain Grosjean.

“#dangerous the new @davidguetta single available Monday October 6th,” David tweeted last week.

The elaborate seven-minute video, which premiered Friday during Google Hangout at YouTube Space New York, opens with an argument between Guetta and Grosjean during a press conference, with the two drivers nearly coming to blows when they meet face to face on the track.

In the video Guetta is driving Lotus’s 2013 F1 car i.e. Lotus E21. The E21 featured a moulded carbon fibre and aluminium honeycomb composite monocoque chassis and was powered by a Renault RS27-2013 engine.

“As an artist, you get to make all of your fantasies happen,” Guetta said during the Hangout, which Mashable attended. “Like I want to be a Formula One driver, and I want to win.”

David and Sam also collaborated on the song “Lovers on the Sun,” which was released over the summer and will be one of the tracks featured on the album.

Guetta has recently released his sixth album, Listen, arriving Nov. 24.  The DJ behind “Titanium” and “Turn Me On” recently told Billboard, “There are featured artists of course, but none that you’d expect with me, and really it’s just completely different from anything I’ve done before. That’s why it has taken almost three years.”

The album features an impressive list of guests, including Nicki Minaj, Emeli Sandé, The Script, John Legend, Nico & Vinz, Ryan Tedder Magic!, Bebe Rexha and Sia, who he previously collaborated with on the massively successful “Titanium” in 2011.

“The way that I’m making my album is ultra-traditional,” Guetta told Billboard at New York’s Electric Zoo festival in early September. “I’m composing with piano, guitar, acoustic instruments, and then completely at the end when I had 100 songs, only then did I pick the best 15 or 18 and turn them into dance tracks. That’s a completely opposite process of what I used to do. It was a big challenge, but it was the right challenge.”
