7 TIMES F1 DRIVERS SCARED THEIR PASSENGERS S***LESS ON DEMO RUNS

Mrs Potty Mouth

05 DEC. F1 drivers are a bit of a mad lot, some more than others, so when given the chance to scare somebody witless by driving them round a race track, they usually leap at the chance.

However, as our little selection here shows, some are a bit better at giving taxi rides than others…

ANTONIO PIZZONIA

“Don’t worry, it’ll be fine, this Jaguar corners like it’s on rails.”

RICCARDO PATRESE

Riccardo takes Mrs P for a spin, she proceeds to become MOST unladylike…

NIGEL MANSELL

Would you accept a lift in a two-seater F1 car from the most accident prone man in the history of the sport?

No, we wouldn’t either…

MAX VERSTAPPEN

While at Toro Rosso, Max gives dad Jos a ride around Monaco and if you can scare Jos, you know you must be good…

DAMON HILL

Damon gives a demonstration run to TV journalist, Dominic Littlewood, who is soon depositing diced carrots all down the side of a nice new Mercedes.

LEWIS HAMILTON

Now this is one guy you’d probably trust not to stick it in the scenery. However, the look on F1 presenter, Rosanna Tennant’s face as they approach turn one at Sepang tells you how scary it is, regardless of who your chauffeur is…

NICO ROSBERG

Anything Lewis can do, Nico can do better (apparently) and here he treats, if that is the word, David Coulthard to an insanely rapid lap of the Nurburgring.

The PROPER Nurburgring…
