Hey, safety car driver, that white line is there for a reason. Retard.

Is "the door flies open in a side-by-side collision" a safety feature?

Somebody doesn't know how to properly merge onto a high speed road.

This was posted and discussed in 'random discussion (motorsports)' topic already ;)

That whole first lap was pretty crazy. Gotta love those street circuits.

The problem is, there are too many street circuits in WTCC nowadays. One is OK for occasional fun, but touring cars should race on proper race tracks.

Indeed, it does suck that there is absolutely no room for overtaking, unless you make the guy in front of you spin out, which results in you getting a penalty for poor driving standards.

a bit hard to tell how fast the BMW was going under the yellow flag... but either way, the "safety" car driver should have been more careful and a) looked before going and b) not gone straight to the middle of the road

How could the SC driver possibly have seen the BMW around the curve and behind the barrier, short of X-Ray vision?

He went straight for the middle of the track instead of running along the wall for a bit so that if a race car came around the corner it wouldn't hit the safety car

It was the safety car driver's fault. he hadn't even been given permission to leave the pits.

Had he followed the clearly marked acceleration path, instead of cutting right into the exit of a blind corner, he wouldn't have gotten hit.
