    Mr. Massini - I'm curious did this run in a news story that perhaps has the "rest of the story" about how this unfortunate situation took place? Obviously loss of control into a river but the back story is always interesting.

    No rest of the story known so far. At least not to me.
    "Loss of control" for sure.
    Potential speeding in an 80 km/h zone, not sure/not confirmed.

    Loss of control is always a loss of licence in CH I hope the driver is ok.

    Wonder if he’ll be fined for polluting that crystal clear Swiss water?

    Well that's a bad day.

    Looks like the photo maybe was taken from a bridge; wonder if that's where he went off?

    Yes, that's for sure and that bill will be higher than any others he's now faced with.

    Yes, all the recent versions exceed 500 hp…..what I hate these days about the GT3 cars is the value proposition……even a plain Jane non-RS exceeds$250k….used.
