It's super hard to tell but those angles suggest to me that Mark was likely trying to drive down the inside of the Ferrari and was likely tagged by the Ferrari turning left into him not realising he was there.
Iirc that is a pretty wide bit of track so there should have been loads of room to do this.
The impossible often has a kind of integrity which the merely improbable lacks.
I believe in WEC regulation when lapping other cars. The car being lapped has to hold its line and does not have to move over. That's why Mark probably tried to go inside the Ferrari when there's really no gap on the inside, unless he goes over the pit entrance.
After so much renovation of the circuit, I wonder why they still have those concrete walls on one of the fastest parts of the circuit. Why not install SAFER barriers. It's not the first time we've seen crashes at that point of the circuit and when it happens, it's always a massive crash.
Proper safer barriers really seems to be the way to go at some places.
But yesterday at T1, another crash happened, where the safety measurements(not a safer barrier) probably increased the decelerations. Look how fast the car stops in the second video, with a safer barrier it would slide along at it and not stop that suddenly.
Dear FIA, if you read this, please pm me for a redesign of the Technical Regulations to avoid finger nose shapes for 2016! :-)
Does anyone now what engine and ERS's the Nissan GT-R LM NISMO wil run in 2015?
Irvine:"If you don't have a good car you can't win it, unless you are Michael or Senna. Lots of guys won in Adrian Newey's cars, big deal. Adrian is the real genius out there, there is Senna, there is Michael and there is Newey.They were the three great talents."
