French ride – Juan Pablo Montoya

In May 2003, the French police confiscated Juan Pablo Montoya’s driving license. The famous former Formula 1 driver was stopped by the French police on his return to Nice. He was driving his BMW 5.

What did he done to have his driving license confiscated?

He was driving his BMW at the speed of 204 km/h on the section of the road where the speed limit was 130 km/h.

To be honest, as soon as the local police realized who he was, they immediately returned him his license. Montoya paid just a small fine for speeding.

Just a few days later, he finished second on the French Grand Prix and drove the fastest lap during the race.

His “practice” outside of the racing track apparently paid of.
