The Baku clusterf*ck has been upgraded. It used to happen in the race, now it happens in free practice.

I'm thinking the people who weld the drains aren't used to or know how to weld cast iron properly. You would expect something like this to be ultrasound tested but who knows what they do or who does it, would tell you pretty quick if it's going to hold or not.

Amateur hour. Unbelievable, even Monaco doesn't get this wrong.

Bloody amateurs. Seems someone forgot to close the manhole covers properly. They have three or four fixing points.
I don't think they need to be welded at all. It seems they just didn't close them properly.

But the best part was definitely the truck hitting the bridge! #-o

They are not welded in our country and we live problems with our road cars too. I think Azerbaijan is not better than us.
