Released with a caution? I'm all for an element of discretion, but well over twice the speed limit and a determined attempt to escape the police suggests to me there is MUCH more to this story than meets the eye.

What difference does it make that he had not been drinking and had three passengers and is not Spanish. Driving at that speed should be enough to remove his car immediately.

He was released as he hadn’t been drinking and had 3 passengers with him. Nonetheless he will shortly appear in court and will no doubt be fined and have his license removed for some time. By the way, he wasn’t Spanish.

Another stupid idiot who should have had his car taken away before he does it again with possible fatal consequences.

How many lives did this idiot put at risk by speeding through Palma at 119 kph only to be released without charge,what a farce,he will be bragging to all his mates now and probably on social media. He should have been held till he could be taken to court and fined and been given penalty points.

Wonderful, so why bothering stopping him in the first place as they are freed a few hours later Feels like Belgium there you do not even go to jail when you kill someone in traffic, only when you swear at a soccer game......

That is incredulous, they let him off with a caution. What will that send signals to ALL the other young idiots, in powerful lethal weapon cars. Unless there is an instant penalty applied to these young fools, like removal of driving licence , then they will continue with lunatic driving.
