Watch an F1 driver crash a Jaguar (with a journalist in the passenger seat)

Antonio Pizzonia was never one of F1's greats, but he did bag a seat with Jaguar for the 2003 season.  Pizzonia was dropped halfway through the season due to a string of performances.

What didn't help his stock with the Jaguar F1 bosses was crashing a 400bhp Jaguar S-Type R with Autocar journalist, Steve Sutcliffe in the passenger seat.  The incident took place at the first corner at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona.  Apparently Pizzonia used the brake point for an F1 car.
