Actually I think that Juan has a knack for driving through/around wrecks. I noticed (as did others) that he was the first car through without spinning/wrecking.
I sagely announced to my wife and child (who were of course rapt with attention
) that Juan is really good at that.
BTW if your sarcasm meter didn't just peg you need a refurb.
In all honesty he did have to be in position to avoid the wreck.
In other news, WTF was Tony doing? He was going high and then decided waaaay too late to go low. Bad spotting?
Dover being a "self cleaning" race track, one expects the high line to be preferred in case of trouble.
Sadler wasn't sliding down fast but the high line would've gotten Tony by. I think that was bad decision making right there.
Again, in the interest of full disclosure, Smoke is one of my top three favorite drivers.
I think that the two drivers' relative reactions to the incident (albeit not from identical points of view) highlight what I am saying about Montoya. JP would have never acted on a change of heart that came too quickly for the car to handle.
