Manuel Maldonado is the cousin of former F1 racer Pastor Maldonado who, as everyone will remember, raked in a nice collection of crashes over the course of his five-year career in F1.
Young Manuel is trying to make a name for himself in British F3 where he races with Fortec. Unfortunately, it seems the Venezuelan has inherited part of his cousin's infamous genes.
More specifically the ones that appear to induce brain fade at any given time.
Manuel's round at Rockingham over the weekend didn't go to well, with the young gun misisng his braking point and crashing into two other drivers as a consequence.
The end result was an exclusion from the event by the stewards for 'driving in a matter not compatible with safety'.
Enough said. Check out the videos.
Shocked to hear that this guy is Pastor Maldonado's cousin. You'd never guess... pic.twitter.com/6yanYCUUQi
