Photo here. Doesn't look too bad in the photo.

It's the second time he's had a slip-up with this car as this photo from wreckedexotics.com shows.

I imagine they can be a swine to handle in greasy conditions. Probably wouldn't have happened in the MP4-12C because of its electronic aids.

Curse of Top Gear maybe?

Having said that when Jenson first went on he had not won a race.....and then won the next one!

Fair play to him for using it regularly.

Mclaren will rebuild it, I have seen far worse on a site about a US one that was rebuilt. These cars are to valuable to write off.

I imagine him talking to the police in that rarely-heard, low and quiet Mr. Bean style that always starts with a fluttery nervous laugh... "Ahehehehehehehe...I...ah....spunit...."

But what I'd really like to know is, can he do THIS with the McLaren:
