The flying Frentzen

Former Formula 1 driver Heinz-Harald Frentzen has been stopped for speeding by the French police on a motorway south of Avignon in France. The German was clocked at 133mph in an 80mph zone. Under French law Frentzen had his licence suspended immediately and his car confiscated by the police and he could end up being banned from driving in France for the next three years and fined $1900.

After being booked Frentzen was taken to the local railway station so that he could continue his journey by train.
