Ferrari Break Failure or Fabio Fails to Break?
Although anonymous sources (who claimed to be next to Fabio when the unfortunate incident happened) stated that Fabio said he had no brakes just before the crash, WCD rejects this hypothesis: "After preliminary investigation, World Class Driving found the car was in excellent working condition prior to the incident and that brake failure was not an issue."
Messing around with a 620 HP sport car can be fun, especially when it doesn't belong to you. But before testing it without knowing how to handle it, Fabio should have thought that such an expensive "toy" has a computer data logging which might demolish his intentions of hiding the truth. WCD announced the log is in the process of being checked in order to establish what really happened, according to TMZ.
After his straight in the face encounter with a goose during a 210 foot drop (goose loses), the 50 years old italian stallion tries to see if he can handle the young troop under Ferrari's hood. In this case, older didn't mean better or wiser.
Indeed driving a Fiorano to that strip of Mulholland and push it through the canyon as much as you can might be dangerous considering it's very tight turns. Come to think of it, that break failure that Fabio reported, might as well be his... failure to break.
