F1 fans’ videos from the 2012 Brazilian Grand Prix

2012 Brazilian Grand Prix

Pastor Maldonado’s lap two crash, which wasn’t seen on television, is among the videos shot by fans at the Brazilian Grand Prix.

Friday practice

Video from practice on Friday near the entry to the pits at Brazil. This was where Romain Grosjean and Petro de la Rosa crashed on Saturday. The lack of run-off and the close proximity of the pit lane entrance are obvious dangers here, and the stewards warned the pair the crash could have had serious consequences.

Maldonado’s crash

    I wonder how FOM editors missed Maldonado’s crash

    none talk about the yellow flag pass from vettel to the toro rosso. There are on the web videos of vettel passing clearly under yellow since the yellow light are on HIS STEERING WHEEL. Hard to believe how lucky vettel is.

    FOM need to work on their camera placements when fan videos are showing the gradient of certain track sections better.

    Oops, bit of a schoolboy error by Maldonado going on a wet kerb like that. A pity, as he must have made up most of his ten places already on lap 1.

    I just… still can’t believe Vettel went on after those not one, but two hits actually. It was a miracle. It was not the three points, but that moments on the last lap, where Fernando Alonso got inches away from his own third crown.

    Massa must have been cringing when he let Alonso past…ouch!
