Formula 1 pilot Heikki Kovalainen crashed his Audi R8 LMS race car at the Race of Champions event over the weekend – how embarrassing. To make it worse, his girlfriend was riding shotgun.

The accident was reportedly the result of a suspension failure – which is what we hope they’d say about us if we were one of the world’s best drivers, piloting an awesome race car with our girlfriend in the passenger seat.

Neither Kovalainen nor his girlfriend were injured, although the crash is pretty cool to watch.
