The Monaco Grand Prix is only eleven weeks away, but one 16-year-old driver thought he’d be driving Formula 1 this Saturday after 6pm.
At the wheel of a Citroen AMI, this unlicensed electric car has a top speed of 45 km/h, and this miner quickly negotiated the Fairmont hairpin, one of the slowest in the F1 World Championship.
The scene was filmed from various angles and later posted on social media. In various videos, we hear the tires screeching as the vehicle begins this tight turn, before the two wheels on the left lift dangerously high. The back of the car crashed violently into the studs protecting the pedestrian walkway in front of the president’s luxury hotel.
Two occupants were taken to CHPG
Fortunately, behind, there were at least two people in the car’s path.
The principal’s fire brigade was immediately called in and sent ten soldiers, notably, a rescue vehicle, which, however, was not effective during the intervention.
The driver and passenger, a 22-year-old man, were treated by emergency services for minor injuries and taken to Princess Grace Hospital Centre. A good fear.
