This is Rowan Atkinson's wrecked McLaren F1

Rowan Atkinson's wrecked McLaren didn't blow up in a fireball, despite what you may have read in the British tabloids if, like us, you were up reading them until the wee hours of the morning. As this photo shows, it was just a simple off.

Yesterday we quoted someone from one of those publications who quoted someone else who determined he was "Lucky to be alive" who, if the quoted person existed at all, was probably another Fleet Streeter.

The car's not in great shape but the chances are good that, as he's done in the past, Atkinson will resurrect his McLaren and put another 30K+ miles on it.
