This must have been an interesting cab ride:
Retired Formula One race car driving champ Michael Schumacher and his family were late for the airport in Germany. So, Schumacher booted his taxicab driver and drove, er . . . raced the cab to the airport himself:
“It was sheer lunacy,” cabbie Tuncer Yilmaz told the Muenchener Abendzeitung newspaper. “He took the curves with full speed, but you couldn’t even notice it. He just knows how to do it.”
Schumacher gave him a $146 tip plus the $88 fare.
