Captured in a video posted on Youtube, the driver of a red-colored Ferrari F458 Spider joins a busy motorway. Instead of zooming off, he slows down. The driver of a car behind presumes this to be a queue for him to drive ahead. He takes the opportunity and overtakes the sports car. He is the one recording the incident.

Suddenly, the driver of the Ferrari begins to accelerate and makes to overtake him. Something goes wrong, and he loses control of his vehicle. He drives into the guardrail beside the motorway, causing damage to himself and his car.

What could have been responsible for the skidding? Perhaps it was the wet and slick road surface.
