when C&D tested the Jaguar F1 car I believe it ran the 1/4 mile in high 10's with the traction control on. It could obviously run faster with wider stickier slicks and taller gearing.

Anyway, to answer the question, you might want to read about this very famous race:
http://espn.go.com/rpm/f1/2003/1211/1683710.html

If you google "Schumacher races jet" you will find a lot more information on this race.

To give perspective on the times.
A drag race (1320 feet = 1/4 mile) is within 8 feet of 400 meters.

Schumacher did 600 meters in 9.4 seconds.
That's 3/8ths of a mile or one-and-a-half drag races.

He did just over 900 meters (1/2 mile is 800) in 13.2 seconds.

And the last race of 1200 meters (3/4 of a mile!) he did it in 16.7 seconds.

Woops, read the rating as metric...0-100 Mph in 5s
