More proof that a surprising number of Ferrari owners can't drive

It wouldn't be correct to say that all Ferrari drivers can't drive. What we can say is that a lot of Ferrari drivers are probably not short of ego, and also probably have little idea of what their cars can do when pressed. Combine a robust confidence with a watching crowd, add a high-powered and sometimes testy car, thrown in a little bit of ignorance... and a pole.. and what you get is the image above.

A man in Australia pulled out of a garage in his Ferrari 360 Spyder, took his chance to impress some gathered folks at cafes lining the street, and floored it. The car, as they say in the business, got away from him. The pole in the median did not. We're never happy to see (another) wrecked Ferrari, or to see a man carted away from his toy by the police, so to you kids with Ferraris, please learn from this and stop the madness.

Our favorite part of this picture is that, having made his boo-boo and probably realizing what he's in for, the driver is still just sitting in the car, although the guy in the blue shirt flexing in the background also gets a special mention... Thanks for the tip, Sam!

He was preoccupied with who is looking at him when he should have been looking at where he was going…

Look at the picture, crowded sidewalk café/restaurant with a captive audience. He was turning left and looking out the drivers window to see who was looking at him… then the pole jumped out of nowhere and he wrapped the Ferrari around it!

Now everyone is looking at the a$$h()*% in the Ferrari….

Next time I'll read... sorry....
