Ferrari Formula One Car Crashed in Moscow

If there’s one thing we know about Russia, besides being the country where vodka was invented, is that anything can happen in traffic. Yes, anything! For instance, cars can fly, burn to a crisp and even encounter a wide range of wild animals while being driven around.

But wait, that’s not all. As of last week, Formula One cars get wrecked in Russia as well. Surprisingly enough, the Ferrari F1 single-seater you’re about to see below was driven by Japanese pilot Kamui Kobayashi, who’s no stranger to such vehicles. He has four years of F1 experience to his name (2009-2012), but apparently that wasn’t enough to enable him to do a burnout in wet weather conditions.

He somehow manages to lose control of the Ferrari and puts it straight into the wall. The vehicle loses a front wheel, which almost hits Kobayashi in the head, and then the engine catches fire. No one was hurt fortunately, but we bet Scuderia Ferrari isn’t too happy about this one.

And you know what’s funny? Some people that attended the event don’t even seem to care about the F1 crash they just witnessed. We heard Russians are careless, but this is ridiculous...
