Norbert Michelisz was leading the opening race of World Touring Car Championship earlier this month at Monza when he met a pigeon on the racing line. It didn't end well for either of them.

The pigeon straight up exploded when it hit the car, as you can see in this YouTube video. The impact was enough to slow the Hungarian BMW driver down all the way to eighth place.
