That's one way to close the bonnet.
At least he got the hood down, that's somewhat nice.
Not quite a moment, but definitely WTF. Karting mixed with AR, I want a go!
A prophetic warning from 1998.
If I remember rightly Brundle used to reference this pet hate a lot - didn't he always say it was because he himself nearly ended up beneath one?
He crashed under a yellow flag in Japan and wiped out a marshal in the wet in 1994.
Yes, when he crashed at a rain-soaked Japan 1994 he span off at the same place Morbidelli had gone off. Morbidelli's car was being towed away and Brundle was very lucky to avoid it but he did hit a marshall who was thrown up into the air and broke his leg.
So Marc Márquez got a MotoGp pole by over 2,5 seconds in 2019...
He picked exactly the right moment for slicks after the rain, but it's quite a margin.
Still, this is the real story of the day...
On a track far from dry that was getting wetter as more rain arrived... Even he admitted afterwards it was an unnecessary risk to push that hard.
On the final lap Marquez was around half a second faster per sector, than the fastest time set on his second lap on those slicks. Come the final sector where there was no dry line to speak of, he only lost 0.07 seconds but was still 1.41 seconds faster than what he'd done before.
I think Huewen summed it up best: "He ain't right."
Compare that to Roberts in Moto2 qualifying.
He walked away with just a bruised ego. A similar crash for Rodrigo at that corner in Moto3 FP1 resulted in a fractured pelvis and a broken collarbone.
Can be a fine line between "doing an Odendaal", and "doing a Rodrigo".
Car recovery gone wrong:
Your link has turned into news about Nintendo
Working for me, there's a little advert progress bar along the top, wait for that to go... otherwise no idea. I'll try to find a YouTube replacement.
I was fully expecting the recovery vehicle to start rolling away as soon as they went to push the other car.
From last weekend at Road America.
Wow, I'm glad he's okay, but when was this during that weekend?
Video description says it was during Friday practice.
Mors Mutual Insurance British GTA Championship
The good thing about Martin Haven calling a British national championship is that his incredibly strong national bias doesn't show because, you know, most/all drivers and teams are British. I'm sure he'd find a way to be biased against non-British cars, that one is for sure.
2007 European Grand Prix up until the red flag.
With Murray Walker guest commentating for BBC Radio with Maurice Hamilton; a rare chance to hear Murray talking about drivers like Hamilton, Massa, Kubica and Kovelainen who all debuted after his retirement.
Thank you, Sato, very cool...
The sequal: 2019 so far...
From the archives:
Keith Odor vaults the Donington catch fencing.
We get it, British gentlemen drivers are way too stupid to handle Thruxton's facilities and layout.
Wasn’t really Sato’s fault at all. The media and commentary team should learn a hard lesson from this, to not make judgement calls until they’ve seen all the facts, all the video, all the angles. That was purely a racing incident. The fact the live commentary team decided to blame Taku on the spot before seeing all the evidence was extremely poor form. So glad he won the following race
On a different note, this is hilarious:
Lando is such a breath of fresh air in the F1 community. Like someone in one of the comments mentioned, how weird is it, in a totally awesome way, that in 2019, a McLaren F1 factory race driver streams PUBG on TwitchTV during the week (and other games) while wearing his racing idol’s pyjama merch. Traditional motorsport media better get on his level ASAP, or they won’t be needed at all for much longer. He truely is the Meme Lord of Motorsport
...Except it was Takuma Sato's fault. There was no need for him to move over the way he did ON THE FIRST LAP. These drivers are professionals and shouldn't be doing things to put themselves in danger and cause a massive wreck.
about Lando Norris. That was great
about Takuma Sato
If Sato, or anyone else for that matter, think they can just swerve like he did at that speed when he’s surrounded by other cars, including one where he attempted to be, they should take up something a lot safer like collecting stamps.
That sort of driving is what gets people killed or seriously injured.
