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.
