It's obviously in the genes because dad is a five-time motorcycle world champion

Not all three-year-olds are created equal. Some are math prodigies capable of performing unfeasibly complicated calculations in their heads, others can play the piano better than an adult with 40 years experience, and some pre-schoolers just happen to be brilliant at pulling donuts in half-million dollar supercars.

One three-year-old who loves laying rubber is Zayn Sofuoglu from Turkey. You might have previously seen a clip of him driving a red Ferrari SF90 around a kart track, and even though he's going slowly it's impossible not to be impressed.

But he certainly wasn't sparing the horses in his latest Instagram video. Strapped into his Cybex baby seat, which sits on the SF90 Stradale's brown leather carbon-backed sports seat, Sofuoglu pushes his right foot down on the specially extended accelerator pedal to spin the Ferrari around and whip up a thick pall of tire smoke.

Okay, so ripping donuts is a whole lot easier than trying to hold a fourth gear drift for 10 seconds along a mountain road, but there are plenty of adults who wouldn't be able to handle the PHEV Ferrari's 986 hp (1,000 PS) and would have stuffed the V8 supercar into the tire wall before it had even completed a single revolution. So what's Zayn's secret? Well, we suspect it's all in the genes. Dad is Kenan Sofuoglu, a former motorcycle racer with five world championships under his belt and gasoline pulsing through his veins.

It's worth clicking through to check out Zayn's Instagram account to see his other crazy antics, which include riding multiple road and dirt motorcycles like a massive six-cylinder Honda Goldwing, jumping an off-road buggy, riding a quad-bike on two wheels and making waves in a 296 hp (300 PS) Kawasaki jetski. It's little surprise that he's amassed over 1 million followers.

Doubtless some people will be horrified to see a three-year old doing these antics and accuse his parents of being irresponsible. But man, do we wish we had dads like that.
