How come the teams can do demo runs during the shutdown? The crew should be away on holiday with their families.

Disagree
Normal is to close the door when the faster driver is still BEHIND, not moving sideways when the other driver is beside - pushing him off the circuity.
Kimi turned right avoiding the incident.

Haha I remember posting earlier in this thread saying I wish Maldonado misfortune due to the way his drives on the track.

His non-chalant attitude to racing is biting him in the arse karma-wise anyway :lol:

So sweet to witness.

i dont know how he can make so many stupid errors, while managed to keep the pressure from Alonso in Spain in such a long race. Weird!

It is not nice to laugh at the misfortune of others but that was just poetic justice. When you have no-one to crash to, you gotta do it yourself :)

Very daring move, not Maldonado's fault I call it a racing incident. Plus the kerb should have anticipated Maldonado would try to rejoin the track from there so kind of the kerb's fault.

Judging by that video, Beancounter is right. The kerb should have yielded - the corner was already PastorĀ“s to take.

I cant watch that video - with it's giant national flags, immaculate wide concrete boulevards, and wildly devoted crowds blindly cheering away as if witnessing the Second Coming - without thinking 'North Korea'.

Compared to other demo run where drivers really didn't drive to the best of their ability thus nowhere like they would drive in a real race, at least Mal gave the audience how he drive in a real race and not some of those sanitized stuff.

Some people behave like no other driver ever crashed a car during demo runs.

Watch this for example:

I know Red Bull, McLaren and the old Renualt team have/had promo teams. A small crew who look after these kind of runs. Maybe Williams do now and they're not included in the shutdown?

yeah, actually i felt bad for him. But i think he is a laughing stock because of history sheet, just like he got penalty for Di Resta incident in Hungary (which other drivers would have certainly escaped).
If it would have happened, say with Kamui or Alonso, it would have garnered different reactions.

Olympics are over and now it's "Bash a Maldonado day". My despise for him has turned into sympathy. I feel sorry for him fulfilling his stereo type on home turf in a setting where there is no one else to blame. Sure his senses must be telling him that his driving needs addressing or else he'll go from a national hero to a national zero.

That is prolly partially why Pastor is "bashed". He takes zero blame for anything thus provoking reactions.

He often misjudge traction in the turns it seems. What a mistake! I feel sorry for him, he obviously doesn't have a feeling for the boundaries in grip. This combined with limited understanding for risk management is likely the result of all incidents.

To my eye, it looks as though he realised too late that the thing wasn't slowing enough (very dirty surface as you can see from the plumes of dust) and he tried to flick it into a spin to scrub off the speed.

Obviously, it didn't work. He's still a douche.

I must admit it did look a bit weird. The car was not going really fast yet he turned and nothing happened. You can see lots of dust fly up where he would be turning so I think he got caught out with cold tyres, low grip and a dusty track. Funny it just had to happen to Pastor though.

Makes you wonder how he won the 2010 GP2 series and managed to keep Alonso back to win in Spain.

The comments from that spectator are hilarious:

"He's always like that. How weird Pastor, how weird it would be if you didn't crash out"

:lol:

I cant watch that video - with it's giant national flags, immaculate wide concrete boulevards, and wildly devoted crowds blindly cheering away as if witnessing the Second Coming - without thinking 'North Korea'.


In the TV coverage of his "demo" run, the commentator didn't mention his crash, or anything being wrong, just talked as if nothing was happening.

If you understand Spanish, this is a little spooky:




At the end of the first one: "[fist in air] Patriotism, socialism, or death! we are winning!"

The kerb did give him the evil eye therefore justifying his move on the kerb. Although Maldonado said after he would not do anything differently next time...
