Driver disqualified after driving GP2 car like he stole it


We've all been there. You're in a hurry, you make some silly overtakes you shouldn't have done and cut up a few other drivers a little bit. Thankfully, most of the time you get away with it without incident – and your antics don't get filmed from 20 different angles.

In his, er, overenthusiasm to get to the front of the race he careered across the gravel traps on the Ascari Chicane – on lap one no less – making up a place in the process and bashing into one of the better-behaved drivers when rejoining the track.
