    Looks like the talent was outranked by the money.

    He has to have had the settings wrong...these cars are lethal if the electronics are turned off.

    Just goes to show, money is no guarantee of intelligence or ability.

    To make that scene perfect, it just needs a child like Nelson to stand, pointing, going 'Ha! Ha!'

    He'd have turned the traction control etc off thinking he has the necessary skills and also the requirement for potentially a slight extra speed advantage to be unlocked in one of the fastest cars in the world on a public road...

    Agreed...it should be called the "kill" position...you should never turn it off. Who of us has the skills to drive one of these without the electronics.

    I've been in a 458 with everything off. Amazing how things go wrong so quickly. This was on an airfield however, with nothing to bump into.

    Agreed. Electronics are for us mere consumers....

    what a fool, however I have to say when I was in Italy a few years ago in my m3, I overtook one evening on a road not motorway and the back end slid out, the roads are very slippery for some reason

    Its the same in Spain. Its all to do with the aggregate they use in the asphalt. It polishes up very quickly.
