panis1Former Formula One driver Olivier Panis lost his driver’s license after he was caught speeding in France. The speed limit for the road was 130kmh (80mph) and Panis was clocked at 212kmh (131mph) in a Ferrari. The Frenchman was driving on the A40 motorway between Chamonix-Mont-Blanc in France and Geneva. Panis’ car was seized and he is required to appear in court in March.

There is currently no word on why Panis didn’t just out-run the police officer.
