Cristiano Ronaldo’s £200,000 Ferrari that was written off last month had been in perfect working order before the smash, according to the manufacturers. Ferrari say Ronaldo’s 599 GTB Fiorano was working perfectly prior to the crash in a Manchester tunnel on January 8, and officers are to speak to the Portuguese international about alleged careless driving with the winger still the subject of an investigation. It is possible Ronaldo could be sent on a driver improvement course rather thanbeing charged with careless driving, which could result in a fine and penalty points on his licence. “The brakes as well as all the other safety systems worked perfectly and were in no way associated with the cause of the accident,” said Ferrari, backed by government vehicle examiners. Ronaldo smashed three of the four ceramic brake discs in the accident, but incredibly nobody was injured.
