Re: And they let him drive a F1 car?
Apparently most F1 drivers don't get much of chance to get behind a production car on a track, it wouldn't suprise me that they would have some difficulty, open wheelers and luxury barges are worlds appart.
I did almost the same thing at the Nürburgring in germany. Wet track, unfamiliar car (FWD focus instead of my rwd skyline), unfamilar road, deceptive corner, uphill, got distracted trying to close in on a WRX and completely understeered off the track at about 90 kmph.. I was lucky in that it was one of the few places that had a bit of a run off area so could control things down and stop nicey and not end up hitting anyone or anything. Felt like it might want to roll, but the grass surface was quite good and smooth not too wet and worked out fine. Lucky..
Girl friend didn't like it, she was on the side where we were sliding to, much screaming and swearing..
But crashing like that isn't that hard to do. Interesting, no airbags, I thought the side airbags might have gone off..
