TV chef Gordon Ramsay claims he needs to push himself close to death in a Ferrari to keep his business empire running.
Gordon, 52, admits that he gets a buzz from being “a split-second away from a 200mph crash” because it makes him feel vulnerable.

The Scot — whose wife Tana is expecting his fifth child — said: “Being vulnerable keeps you hungry and I need that.”
But he “f*****g hates” driving his own million-dollar model around normal streets — so he flies to the Ferrari track in Italy for his “speed fix”.
He said: “When I’m on that track I see myself like I did at 30 years of age, pushing to the extreme. Nothing else takes me to that journey anywhere else in life – whether it is diving with f***ing sharks or playing in front of 75,000 people at Soccer Aid at Old Trafford.
“There is nothing else that gets me to that point in my life thinking: ‘S*** that was a split second away from a 200mph crash’.”
The super-chef is a proud owner of the Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta, of which only 150 were created[/caption]
