Riccardo Patrese Married Wife Francesca Accordi In 2001
Riccardo Patrese married wife Francesca Accordi on June 17, 2001. He had previously met his first wife, Susi, in 1975.
Riccardo and Francesca are parents to two kids, Lorenzo and Elenina.
Elenina is their youngest daughter who is currently around 6 years of age and is often mentioned on Riccardo's social media, enjoying time with her dad.
Lorenzo on the other hand is a 16-year-old car racer. He is an Audi GT3 driver and a professional horse rider. He got inspired by his dad's racing career and started to follow in his footsteps.
Riccardo's son competed for the first time in GT World Challenge Europe with his car Audi R8 LMS GT# EXO2. He is all set to surpass his father's record under the coaching of his father himself.
Lorenzo is available on Instagram under the handle @lorenzo_patrese.
Riccardo's wife loves to watch her husband race but doesn't like to be in the same car.
In a viral video shared by Riccardo, Francesca is screaming and almost crying as Riccardo drives the car at high speed to capture her reaction. Unaware that it was a prank, Francesca screams at her husband as their car hits above 100mph.
Her hands find contact with his ears multiple times as she pleads at him to slow down saying she has babies at home to take care of. When nothing she says gets him to stop, she curses him out saying he would not be driving an f1 car.
It was only when the car stopped in the pits, Francesca noticed the camera. Knowing it was just another of his pranks, she ended up laughing at the hilarity of the situation.
Let's hope, he does not take her on one of his joyrides anytime soon. The smooth sailing boat might hit a rock if he continues.
