Anyways on impact the wheel turned full lock right when the front left wheel made contact with the wall. At this point had Mark done nothing the car would have tried to back right up across the track leading to an accident. Mark grabs the wheel after the impact just and the car starts to roll back and tries to turn hard left. The idea here being that if the wheel is turned left the car will back into the wall rather than the track. In the video you can clearly see that as he attempts to turn left after the impact that he can not complete this action since clearly something is broken ( steering link or rack I am no expert) since you can see the wheel suddenly stop mid input. At this point Mark is unable to prevent the car from rolling onto the track since the steering is broken. He is simply a passenger and the car is going cross the track regardless of Marks input. This in the end leads to a crash. If Mark wanted to take someone out he would have held full lock right the whole time in an attempt to back the car out across the racing line. Its not often I defend Mark, but in this instance he has done no wrong.
I fully agree. but apart from all that, people seem to ignore the fact that the front wheel was not even on the ground, and the car was sliding on its plank, so all the steering input in the world, could not have prevented the car taking the course it did.
