The World's Fastest Driver Crashed His Pagani Zonda

That's embarrassing but his excuse is even worse.

The Pagani Zonda is a supercar that lives in a special place in our hearts. Its screaming, naturally-aspirated V12 engine and beautiful carbon fiber body is more than enough to carve out some space. Unfortunately, it seems that three-time Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton has done something that we consider a crime. He crashed his purple, one-off Pagani Zonda LH into a stationary car while in Monaco. It's one of the few Pagani Zondas with 760 hp, and the manual gearbox that Hamilton optioned for makes it even rarer.

According to the photo, the crash happened at 3:28 am just before the F1 champion was due to fly to Brazil for the Grand Prix there. He blamed his crash on a fever and eventually delayed his flight to Brazil. Luckily, no one was injured but the doctor told Hamilton to rest and leave a day later. For a three-time world champion, blaming his driving mistake on a “fever” is a bit embarrassing.
