Teach Yourself Italian

Using the above as a guide, you will soon be able to convincingly plead for mercy, curse your partner with the skill and dexterity of a ticked-off London docker, and you'll also come away knowing some interesting hand signals, useful to help you with Italian traffic. Especially if they are driving like this.

What we have here is Ricardo Patrese, ex-F1 racer from the 1980s, driving his wife round a lap of the track in a Honda Civic Type R, filming with a hidden camera her pleas to him to slow down. Actually, pleas, curses, screams, rude gestures and doubtless other threats that I for one cannot translate.

Ricardo seems somewhat unmoved! (Thanks to Honda F1 for allowing this out.)
