A stint of Being a Cab Driver

Boys & Gals out there... Don't ever attempt such act. Doesn't matter if you are late or unable to reach the destination on time, its not worth the risk.

Michael Schumacher races in a Taxi

On the verge of missing a flight, seven-time F1 Champion Michael Schumacher jumped behind the wheel of a taxi and arrived in time at the airport with his family, according to a report emanating from AFP.

Taxi driver Tuncer Yilmaz, interviewed by daily Munich newspaper Abendzeitung, said Schumacher asked him if he could drive the car himself. The now-consultant at Ferrari was accompanied by his wife and two children.

"I found myself sitting in the passenger seat with Schumi at my side. It was incredible," explained Yilmaz.

"He made incredible passes and drove at high speed through the curves," added the taxi driver, who was granted a good tip in addition to his fare.

The report was confirmed to German sports news agency SID by Sabine Kehm, Schumacher's spokeswoman.

She explained that the Schumacher family landed at an airport in Coburg, in central Germany, to take delivery of a dog from a breeder located in a nearby village.
