What do you get when you have the world’s greatest driver in a car with the world’s greatest mixologist?

A pretty funny public service video, that is.

As part of a PSA by Bacardi Limited on the perils of drinking and driving, Seven-time F1 world champion Michael Schumacher took Salvatore “The Maestro” Calabrese, widely regarded as the world’s premier bartender, out for a ride on the track in a Maserati to see how Calabrese’s skills as an elite mixer holds up while Schumi loosens the reins on the Maserati.

Of course, the video comes with a few chuckles and curse words from Calabrese but in the end – and despite having his drinks splattered all over his shirt - he somehow manages to whip something up for Formula One’s own ‘Maestro’.

While the video is indeed good for a few laughs, it nevertheless shouldn’t take away from the purpose of the whole PSA – the perils of drinking and driving, and how all of us should avoid it any cost.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Lol. He s ed everything at the first turn. What a waste of good alcohol eh? Lol. Well, coming back to the topic, I really am for the promotion of stopping drunk driving. It doesn’t just endanger the driver and it’s passenger but it also affects the innocent victims on the road whether they are other motorists or some pedestrians on the road.
