Juan Pablo Montoya has had his driving license confiscated by the French police for speeding. The BMW Williams F1 driver was clocked at 126mph on the motorway between Paul Ricard and his home in Monte Carlo. He had his licence taken away on the spot and now faces a heavy fine as the speed limit on French motorways is 80mph. The incident will not affect his Formula 1 activities as Formula 1 drivers do not need to have regular driving licences but need only the FIA Superlicence.

Sadly this does not work on normal roads...
