Buemi in Japan now! :D

That's today, at Chiba, as one of attractions for big beach festival where Fatboy Slim played as a main performer.

What was that man thinking. Also it seems the organizer hasnt done enough. Stupid.


There will be demonstration run again tomorrow btw, on the street in Yokohama!

So he's a staff, not a spectator or press person such as cameraman.

Sure that embankment looks like press/officials exclusive zone, in that sense organizers was doing properly.

But still this is a serious negligence from not only that man but also the organizer, because if it happened when the car is traveling much faster it wouldve caused danger to not only that man but also Buemi too. One might say if car was running faster or it happned at different place you would be able to see the car coming, but you never know what incompetent person like him might act.

I liked how he casually tried to jump over it when he realized it was coming.

Bit of a dumb moment, nothing more.

A better angle:



They said on TV here that the car got more damage than him.

Impressive reflexes really when you think about it, he nearly made it too. Still, probably the stupidest thing I've seen in a while.

I don't know whats more bizzare. The fact somebody actually thought it was a good idea to run infront of an F1 car, or the location Red Bull chose to do this, considering energy drinks arn't exactly popular over there.

Even at that speed it was dangerous to both. You really don't want 70 kg of weight to smack you in the helmet.

yea I know, indeed. what I implied was that apart from sheer luck, that man could jump like that and avoid the worst maybe only because car wasnt traveling that fast.

Why would HE sue any one if he was the one acting like an idiot?

I mean...I wouldn't even think about running into a track with a F1 car near me.

He couldn't even make a proper jump. Wasted opportunity :mad:

BTW, if it was Hamilton his fans would blame Buemi for dangerous driving. :D

I saw that playing while reading an article on autosport and actually thought it was fake until i unmuted it, who in their right mind would run infront of an F1 car at speed and try to jump over it? haha thats hilarious glad hes okay it wouldn't have been funny if he got hurt.

Taking the ancient "sport" of bull leaping to the 21st century.

On more sensible grounds I'm glad that no one was injured.

Or perhaps 'What, you think Survival of the Fittest applies to humans too? Hahaha. What do you think humans are, glorified chimps? Watch this!'

Okay, I guess you're right.

In this video he seems to be perfectly synchronized with the car, and ready to jump. In my opinion he is a lunatic who did it on purpose :rolleyes:

They guy should have at least made sure he can jump 1.8 meeters from a running start before he attempted that. He didn't even make 1.5m. What an idiot.
