Former F1 driver Riccardo Patrese takes his wife on a hot-lap at Jerez!

…what better way than to do it with one of our favourite clips of Riccardo in action?

It’s not him in his F1 days, but rather his later career as a Honda ambassador, where he decides to take his dear wife on a hot-lap of the Jerez circuit in a Honda Civic Type-R, much to her sheer terror.

Now I’m wouldn’t call myself fluent in Italian, but I would have a guess that this didn’t exactly raise his stock very much in the Patrese household!

But what’s even funnier is when Mrs Patrese realises that there’s a camera on the dashboard which has been recording the entire event!

The clip has currently enjoyed almost 5 million hits on YouTube.
