Michael..... a Taxi Driver

Post by maltafan » 11 Dec 2007, 22:44

Michael Schumacher can add the unofficial title of Germany's fastest taxi driver to his other achievements after taking over behind the wheel to get his family to the airport on time.


The retired Formula One champion drove the cab back to the airport himself after a trip out to the village of Gehuelz, near Coburg in southern Germany, left the family short of time to make their flight home, the Muenchner Abendzeitung newspaper reported.

"It was crazy having Schumi driving, with me in the passenger seat," the taxi driver was quoted as saying.

The seven-times world champion, who stopped racing last year but is still involved in the sport as an occasional tester for Ferrari, gave the driver a 100 euro ($146.6) tip on top of the 60 euro fare, the newspaper said.

Being driven around at speed by MS is like getting a blowjob from the Queen.

Yeah, that driver was Turkish (still Turkish though :)).

He appeared in different Turkish TV channels after this occasion and said that dozens of European channels had started to call him on his phone to also appear o their channels and tell the story. He said he couldn't drive any more instead being appeared on TV screens :cheezy:

I heard that Schumi fans are bidding on the car he drove. It's worth about 70 000 dollars if im not mistaken
