Middle East rally star Mohammad bin Sulayem hopes he will get another chance to try a Formula 1 car after crashing a Renault in a demonstration event in Dubai earlier this week.
Bin Sulayem, a 14-time Middle East rally champion and head of the local sporting federation, was participating in a drag race against Renault test driver Romain Grosjean in a sportscar when he lost control of the Renault R28 and spun into the pit wall at Dubai Autodrome.
The crash did significant damage to the 2008 vintage F1 machine, which was in Dubai for several days of events and demonstrations as part of Renault's hugely successful Roadshow programme.
