Renault's Italian ace Jarno Trulli was involved in a car crash scare in Monaco - moments after nabbing his first-ever Formula One pole position.
Trulli does not crash at 180mph - but slow minibuses are a problem
But don't fear, Trulli fans. This was not some sort of high-octane high speed terror smash mayhem thing.
Rather, the Renault driver was among a trio of F1 drivers who were in a minibus which pranged another car while trundling along to a post-qualifying news conference.
Trulli was alongside rising star Jenson Button and Williams' Ralf Schumacher when the accident happened.
"We were laughing because we didn't think there was probably enough
risk on the track when we were running a Formula One car," he joked after the incident.
"We took the biggest risk driving a road car.
"It wasn't something expected. We were a bit surprised when we saw this car
coming towards us."
Button was a little more sheepish after the event, admitting he wasn't wearing a seatbelt in the minibus.
"That was a bit naughty," he said.
"This car came round the corner waving a flag and crashed into us. We were
going the wrong way on the circuit but we didn't have any choice."
Rumours that Michael Schumacher was driving the offending car in order to nobble his pole-position-pinching rival are, of course, utter nonsense.
