From waiting patiently or flashing the driver to using your horn or tailgating him, there are many versions of dealing with such a situation.

Well, the adjacent image shows us how not to react - the image, which was captured by Oskar Bakke during the 2011 Gumball 3000, shows a Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV “pushing” the Mercedes E-Class in front of it to the side.

The Lambo is being driven by alpine ski racer Jon Olsson, who’s been a constant presence at the Gumball over the last few years.

Sure, it’s cool to have your SV shoot flames while you manhandle the slow and stubborn driver up front into submission, but that massive wing will probably get thorn apart in the crash that could follow, so you’d better avoid such maneuvers.
