Riding as a passenger while a professional race car driver is behind the wheel is a dream for a lot of people. But what if that driver is Grand Prix driver Mark Webber?

This is exactly the situation tennis star Maria Sharapova found herself in as she sat next to Webber in the cockpit of a brand-new Porsche 918 Spyder.

Before taking the win at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix event, Sharapova took a ride in the 918 Spyder, a car she has had her eyes on since the Los Angeles Auto Show in Nov. 2013. Webber noted that a lot of the car features technology found in the Porsche 919 race car, and that he is very tempted to get his own 918 Spyder.

Check out the video above, posted to YouTube April 26 by Porsche Tennis GP, to see the drive.
