Top Gear meets Dario Franchitti
Triple Indycar champion, married to a movie star, car nut. Super Dario lets his driving do the talking in a Fezza face-off
Posted: 28 May 2012
It's worth pointing out that there are no hangers-on, no PR flunkies - it really is just Dario and his Ferrari, so after a bit of car gossip, the three of us stroll into the village in search of breakfast. The trouble is, it's Easter Monday, and the only place open is a grotty attic tearoom above an overstocked tourist tat shop. We're the only customers. The current Indycar world champion seems utterly unphased by this, asks for a mug of tea and a sausage bap and settles back to talk cars, roads, driving and racing, pretty much in that order.
