    Rowan Atkinson crashes McLaren F1

    History repeating itself for Rowan Atkinson?

    October 1999
    August 2011

    (Interestingly, in 12 years the car had increased in value from 650k to 2m. Not sure if this crash is repairable this time though...)

    Doesn't the F1 have a history of catching fire or am I thinking of another supercar?

    The much more recent Ferrari 458 certainly did that, dunno about the F1.

    Look on the bright side....

    It will have melted down the gold, that they used in the engine housing, make yourself a little ingot, and you can survive the recession (probably!!)

    I like how the BBC is reporting "Atkinson taken to hospital after crashing supercar" yet the actual body of the story shows he got out the car, stood and waited until an ambulance turned up and then was treated for a minor shoulder injury.
    The BBC sensationalist headline makes it sound like 20 paramedics rushed him to an ER where they are fighting to save his life.
    Who said the NOTW is dead!

    That's the one. Thanks, I hope my post hasn't lost Mclaren any sales

    That's what sells newspapers. I can still remember the shock when I saw this Breaking News: Button injured in horrific F1 training accident
