Formula One - Spanish Grand Prix - Paddock Day - Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya

Most parents with teenage children of driving age worry about what they're getting up to behind the wheel. And with good reason – drivers aged 17-24 are disproportionately more likely to be involved in a fatal collision than any other age group.
But how do you tell your teenage son to have a think about his driving when he's already a Formula One driver? This was just the dilemma facing former racing driver Jos Verstappen when he climbed into a Renault Clio RS 200 with his son, Toro Rosso driver Max Verstappen, behind the wheel.
