A LOT of men fancy themselves as the next Lewis Hamilton behind the wheel, but they certainly wouldn't cut it in the pits as new research reveals that most don't know even know how to change a flat tyre.
According to a survey by Continental Tyres, nearly half of the men they questioned had never changed a tyre, with over a third admitting that they don't even know where to start.
However, men are keeping this embarrassing secret under wraps, although 43 per cent of women believe it's a man's job to change a punctured tyre. One in three of these 'knights in shining armour' confessed to using any excuse to get out of the task, with an image-conscious 47 per cent saying that they didn't want to ruin their clothes.
