It seems likely that João Barbosa spent some time sleeping on the couch after taking his wife to the office at this years 24 Hours of Daytona.  The driver took his lovely wife around Daytona International Speedway in a two-seater Daytona prototype at 300 km/h.  Mrs. Barbosa doesn’t seem to enjoy the experience all that much. Throughout the duration of six-minute video her high-pitched scream often drowns out  the whine of the race car’s gearbox. This is almost as much fun as watching racer Riccardo Patrese’s wife get angry in the passenger seat of a Honda Civic Type-R a few years ago.  Enjoy the video below and remember, don’t drive your wife around a racetrack at high speed if you want to to stay out of the doghouse.
