It's almost a miracle nobody got injured.

Holy shitballs that was horrifying, can't believe he walked away from that.

And how about that tyre almost coming down on that photographer? Oh man, they are very, very fortunate.

Thankfully McNiash is alright. And how did all those photographers and marshalls not have their heads taken off? That was a huge disaster that thankfully didn't happen.

I wonder if anyone got hit by flying parts, there were Audi parts everywhere! And I am waiting for these pictures, I bet someone pressed the shutter.....

Cue tennis and cycling on the Eurosport channels -.-

PS: amazing how safe these modern cars are in a crash, there's almost nothing left of the car, yet Alan managed to walk away from it

Dammit, McNish. :( Glad to hear that everyone's okay, but it's sad to see #3 out that early.
