Post Germany's fastest taxi - December 11, 2007, 07:53 PM

BERLIN (Reuters) -
Michael Schumacher can add the unofficial title of Germany's fastest taxi driver to his other achievements after taking over behind the wheel to get his family to the airport on time.

The retired Formula One champion drove the cab back to the airport himself after a trip out to the village of Gehuelz, near Coburg in southern Germany, left the family short of time to make their flight home, the Muenchner Abendzeitung newspaper reported.
"It was crazy having Schumi driving, with me in the passenger seat," the taxi driver was quoted as saying.
The seven-times world champion, who stopped racing last year but is still involved in the sport as an occasional tester for Ferrari, gave the driver a 100 euro ($146.6) tip on top of the 60 euro fare, the newspaper said.

You damn well, that wouldnt fly...here in the good ole' US of A.

If you give a taxi driver $150 extra here in the states, I bet a lot of them will let you drive their taxi too, unless you look really shady.

And if you're a celebrity millionare racecar driver, I'm sure that most taxi drivers in the US will let you drive their taxi.

Fru.

I know I trust Shumakers driving more so than my own. Kinda like if Rossi asked for a ride on my bike, then said, "Es ok I drive?" Id be one bitch riding fool.
