Jeremy Clarkson inconsolable.

A standard version of the F1 that was wrecked twice by actor Rowan Atkinson sold for over $12 million in 2015 after he spent over $1.4 million on repairs.

Somebody sold Mr. Bean a McLaren? What the hell did people expect?

At least he didn't end up in the great gig in the sky.
 
2017-03-20 04:12:22 PM  
Sounds like he had a momentary lapse of reason

Well, I suppose the question of "shall we drive a more powerful car?" in Empty Spaces has an answer.

If you don't crash your McLaren, you can't have any pudding.

Fun fact: Atkinson is a total petrol head and seriously good driver. He held the top spot on the Top Gear leader board one series, I think.

At least he was comfortably numb.

He sped it up instead of slowing down

I know it sucks to get old, but at some point in your life, you have to put away the high powered toys that require reflexes that have left you long ago.

Looks like he was cruisin' for a bruisin'.

After the final cut of the wheel did he call roadside assistance and say "Wish you were here"?

2nd with the Cee'd. Matt LeBlanc beat him by a tenth of a second.

I don't know if he was really drunk at the time...

McLaren has an area in their factory dedicated to maintaining F1s so I'm sure the car will be repaired in no time at all.

And if you've never seen the McLaren factory, it's worth a look on YouTube.  It's quite fascinating.
 
2017-03-20 05:58:35 PM  
Got to keep the loonies on the path.
 
2017-03-20 05:59:35 PM  
Looks like he'll have to buy a new car, caviar...


Rann Xeroxwon this already
 
2017-03-20 05:59:58 PM  
I bet at the moment when the brakes locked and he slid towards the big truck, he stretched the frozen moments with his fear.
 
2017-03-20 06:00:13 PM  
come in here dear boy, wreck your nice car - you're gonna spin far
 
2017-03-20 06:03:41 PM  
I hate to meddle, but maybe he was distracted when some animals crossed the road, or perhaps his view was obscured by clouds.
 
2017-03-20 06:08:27 PM  
Perhaps he should switch to a bike.
 
2017-03-20 06:08:53 PM  
Nearly blew his mind out in a car.
Was it a charity event?  Don't give me that do-goody-good bullsh*t.

He'd have to admit he's shorter of breath, and one day closer to death.
 
2017-03-20 06:16:29 PM  
when he bought it, the car salesman quipped, "welcome to the machine!"
 
2017-03-20 06:17:55 PM  
Hey!  Drummer!   Leave that wall alone!

I'll trust that they'll know when it's time to finally hang it up. That said, these guys sure know how to live.
 
2017-03-20 06:23:25 PM  
Mason's mistake was that he set the controls for the heart of the sun.  Witness the man as he raved at the wall.

Hush now baby, baby don't you cry.
 
2017-03-20 06:26:15 PM  
A wall, not THE wall.
 
2017-03-20 06:26:38 PM  
He'll be looking at the repair bill and thinking it's a drag.
 
2017-03-20 06:28:43 PM  
SERIOUSLY?!! That's the headline?

I'm not on TF, so I can't tell, but did no one submit "All in all it's just another Nick in the wall?"

Do they have room dedicated to pistolns?

It's all dark, really.

Funny headline, Subby  lol

Lucky enough to have raced a single seat Formula Ford at Goodwood.  Not a great track, but oozing with history.  In fact, it's a rather dull track, almost all right handers, but deceptively fast and therein lays the problem.  You just concentrate on hitting the line and apexes as perfectly as possible, and then you get bored and press the limits until it bites you in the arse.  Stirling Moss was nearly killed there in the early 60s.
 
2017-03-20 07:04:19 PM  
I guess he hadn't got a bike.
 
2017-03-20 07:11:26 PM  
He was swerving to avoid pigs on the wing

Multi-Million dollar McLaren? Being friends with the band really pays well.

"Mummy, when I grow up I want to be a drummer"
"Don't be silly darling. You can't do both"

thats NOT a wall tardmitter.

Set the controls for the heart of the rubber retaining barrier.

Mr. Bean is often loaned race cars by their owners. And he has a history of not giving them back in good repair.

TFA mentioning not upon the driver's condition.
