Piquet loses license

According to reports, three-time Formula 1 champion Nelson Piquet and his wife have lost their driving licenses after racking up one too many traffic violations. Piquet is thought to have had his license revoked thanks to speeding and parking tickets, and his wife, Viviane, is thought to have had hers taken away for bad driving.

Both will be attending a mandatory driver awareness course lasting 30 hours spread across eight days. At the end of the course, they will be required to pass an exam before they get their licenses back.

Piquet is fairly laid-back about the problem. “I think we have to pay for our mistakes,” he remarked. “It s not even just a speeding problem I got tickets for all kinds of reasons, for things like parking where I shouldn t.”
