Default Ferrari are left red faced

This looks quite embrassing! Yesterday at the Ferrari World Finals in Valencia, a red Ferrari California got stuck in a gravel trap during the parade lap. In the drivers seat was Luca Montezemolo and sitting behind him were Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa.

No one knows why, but for some reason Mr. Montezemolo drove slowly into the gravel trap and as you can see got stuck pretty bad.
Looks like the crowd was enjoying it, as you don’t get to see Formula 1 stars trying to push the car out of sand everyday.
