What the heck are you talking about? The Corvette let him go on the inside, Ther 908 passed cleanly while The Vette lost it on the marbles. There was no contact according to Corvette Racing.
All endurance commentators were saying that Davidson was behaving a bit like a maniac. The slower drivers are told that they should not change their lines and everybody assumes that the faster cars do not take the risks that Davidson took in that pass. I think that swearing on Davidson is a bit over the top, but Ray has a point that it was a pretty rude move for a 24 h race. Obviously loosing one or two seconds for a safer pass will not change the result of your race but it would have helped poor Olivier Beretta who stuffed it into the armco out of shock.
I honestly don't think Davidson was the one to blame. They were side by side at the corner entry. The corvette could have just eased off the throttle and it wouldn't have crashed.
