"I rely on my helmet, seatbelt, the safety features of the car and the track working together to help reduce the risk of injury."

He also said that the safety standards seen on the F1 circuit need to also be adhered to on public roads.

Meanwhile, Mr Cameron stated that despite Britain's roads being regard among the safest the world, work still needs to be done to improve them.
