Formula One driver Juan Pablo Montoya has had his licence confiscated for speeding in the south of France.
Montoya told police he was used to driving fast
Police said on Monday that the 27-year-old Colombian had been clocked on Sunday driving a BMW four-wheel-drive at 204 km/h (122 mph) in a 130 km/h (78mph) zone.
Police motorcyclists caught up with him and fined him 1,000 euros (£660) on the spot.
The offence will not affect his world championship campaign, on behalf of the Williams team, as a regular driving licence is not needed to drive a Formula One car.
The Nice Matin newspaper said he had not hesitated to admit speeding, but had told police he was well used to driving fast.
Officials said he could face a two-month suspension from driving in France.
The incident occurred on the A8 motorway between Le Muy and Frejus.
Montoya is seen as one of the main challengers to Michael Schumacher's dominance of F1 over the coming years.
He took seven pole positions in 2002 - as many as Schumacher - to finish third.
He is regarded as the most exciting racer in F1, with a rare gift for improvisation, but there are concerns within the WIlliams team about the extent of his commitment to the job.
