We've all been there. Usually it's at a track day while other times its a windy mountain road. No matter the setting we're all undoubtedly familiar with those situations where your passenger gets a little queasy when you're busy twirling the tiller.

Girlfriends and best friends are the usual victims, but ex-F1 champ Damon Hill found a British journalist to be the first to succumb to his rather spirited driving.

While being shown the virtues of an SL55 AMG, the scribe's stomach took umbrage at Hill's aggressive techniques and decided to void itself of its contents, which thankfully were directed out of the window and onto the track. Happily for us, the event was captured by an in-car camera:

But it seems Hill's not alone. Race drivers around the globe seem to have a knack for upsetting their tag-alongs. Witness Ricardo Patrese quite literally driving his wife mad in a Honda Civic Type R:

And check out Japanese drifter Kazuhiro Tanaka reducing a girl to tears in his WRX drift car:

So, the next time you're giving it some herbs and making them tyres squeal, make the effort to glance at the poor soul seated next to you. If they're swearing, that's okay. If they're weeping, then that's not so bad either. If they're a little bit green though, pull the hell over. That stuff is impossible to get out of the carpet.
