Strong exhaust smell in cabin

I get exhaust smell inside the car when driving hard, is it normal? Aircon and windows up helps a bit but still noticeable.

i had the same problem when i first got my car in 2009 and was worried. the smell of petrol inside the car was so strong i had to put the windows down. i got it checked over in nissan and they mentioned some reason but didnt seem entirely sure.

since then it still happens occasionaly after i've been driving hard. for example, if i park up the car for 5 mins to go in the shop after hard driving and then get back in the car i get a whiff of petrol inside but nothing too strong. tends to stop after a few minutes...
