There was an amusing story kicking about on the news wires yesterday

Love him or loathe him, former F1 world champion Michael Shumacher is certainly a well known face – albeit quite a wide one too.

Anyway, he decided to catch a cab in Bavaria after picking up a new dog – like you do – and asked the driver if he could drive as he was late for a flight back home.

The cab driver, who couldn’t believe his luck, then had to hold on for dear life as Shumacher flung him all around the cab on the way back to the airport. Michael then chucked the driver a cool 100 Euro tip on top of the cost – not bad for a near death experience!

Maybe they could start a new sport similar to Top Gear’s Mobile Home Racing – which I thought was genius – where former racing drivers race clapped out taxis. No, just me then?
