Rowan Atkinson Crashes F1.......again

So for the second time Atkinnson has crashed his F1. Nice to see the car is actually used and abused rather than sitting under a dust cover in a garage.

This was the damage from the first incident in 1999.

There's a difference between "used and abused" and crashing it. Poor F1, color combo not my favorite though

At least he has the cash to repair it. Which is saying something.

Jesus he really can drive, well done Mr B



Boo to BMW for not having the guts to launch the Phantom with the V16. They should offer it as a special order item.
