Gentleman, start your taxi – or move over and let me drive

| 12/14/2007

A taxi driver in Berlin said he was so starstruck when former Formula One racing champ Michael Schumacher stepped into his cab at the airport that he could barely drive and nearly forgot the traffic rules.

The Associated Press reports that’s when Schumacher asked if he could slide behind the wheel.

The cabbie obliged and said the ride was “sheer lunacy” with Schumacher taking the curves at full speed.

The cabbie said he’ll never forget the ride, or the tip, of nearly $150.
