F1 car hits spectator in mad cross track dash
From espnf1.com 04/06/11:
Sebastien Buemi ran over a spectator during a Red Bull demonstration event in Japan which was being held to raise money for tsunami victims.
Ouch – talk about kicking a country while it’s down!
Buemi was carrying out his usual routine when a spectator decided to take a short-cut across the track from behind a bridge. Unfortunately, he ran straight in front of the Red Bull, but a last-second jump as the car hit him probably saved him from serious injury.
Or slicing him clean off at the ankles.
Fortunately, neither Buemi or the spectator were injured.
Phew!! Does that mean there won’t be another car compensation claim clogging up the courts?
Incidentally, the various reports I’ve read all say it was a Red Bull that Buemi was driving; going back to his Scuderia Toro Rosso next weekend in Canada will no doubt seem like a load of bull.
See what I did there?
