    Haha! :D

    This happens all the time. I'm surprised the Italian Police didn't let him go though. They must still be upset that Ferrari didn't win. :p

    Italian police are targeting Renault drivers. :D

    I remember when Button was stopped for doing 150mph in a BMW diesel. :eek:
    Of course, he was driving for Williams at the time, so I'm not surprised he kept his license.

    You need a 'super licence' to drive in Formula One, which he'll hold in addition to a standard drivers licence – so seeing it's his road licence and not his racing licence Fisichella has lost he should still be able to race, although he's going to have to cadge a lift off someone else to the track... :D

    :eek:

    A race car driver....speeding? NO!:rolleyes:

    The policeman was probably just p*ssed that Fisichella was beaten by his French teammate this past season.

    You mean Spanish? I thought Alonso was Spanish.

    He is. They drive for a French team though.

    Hey, I just realized. Since Renault has a shop in England and one in France, it was just like WWII! They beat Italy + Germany. :D

    Oh, and the Russians and Americans apparently didn't figure into this version much, and the Japanese just kinda futzed around.

    Haste makes waste when typing :rolleyes: .....I meant he was driving for a French team yet was beaten by a Spanish teammate, thus ensuring that, along with Ferrari and Minardi's poor showings, the Italians cut a poor figure in the 2005 F1 season.

    Well, a Russian owns Jordan/Midland F1....but the Americans are noticably absent from the world's second most popular sport. But not to worry - in '06 we will have an American driver in the person of Scott Speed driving for Torro Rosso. Yay!

    Well I remember when Button was under 21, he wasn't allowed to drive in many countries (had to be taxied around) but could still race.

    So I doubt you need a license to race.
