A Good Driver Is Not Always a Safe Driver

Three time formula 1 champion Nelson Piquet will have to take driving lessons to get his revoked driving licence back. He has been speeding and breaking other traffic regulations. In a statement, he says he has to pay for his mistakes. When you are a former formula 1 champion, there is no doubt that you are a good driver. This does not mean, as is obvious from Mr Piquet's example, that you are a safe driver. There are differences between driving in the street and driving in a race. I guess it is the same with everyone who competes. I would not act the same in my ordinary life as I do in the dog show ring, for example. Well, I am sure Nelson Piquet gets his driving licence back soon.
