Apparently a former F1 star, but who?

http://www.foxnews.com/leisure/2016/06/20/mystery-former-racing-ace-smashes-his-200000-aston-martin-supercar/?intcmp=hpff

An ex-Formula One ace was left red-faced after smashing his luxury sports car on a British highway, The Sun reports.

The crushed black Aston Martin V12 Vantage had to be moved by police after the driver veered off the road clipped and the central reservation of the M20 motorway.

Since they said former I was thinking either David Coulthard or Nigel Mansell. Could be an older guy too though.

I guess we can rule out Schumaker.

I was thinking it must be Maldonado, but he was no "ace".

they need to make a law that limits ALL cars and trucks to 80mph tops. there is no need to be going those speeds. think of the children!

Even more when you're in a high performance car with wide tires and get cocky.

A crash in the rain? I'm going with Coulthard. But they did say ex-Formula One "ace", so maybe not.

assault cars are weapons of war, Cars with 1000HP should be banned, and if your on the no fly list you shouldn't be able to purchase one.

car should be limited to 100hp and 15 gallon tank

said some stupid fucking liberal cunt.

Not that much damage to the car, so either he kept it under control and just crunched the divider or he wasn't going all that fast. Also the fact he didn't hit anyone else is to his credit. Supercars aren't generally made to do well in adverse weather conditions.
