  1. Now take a look how much space (to the right) Kvyat had to avoid rear ending Alonso. It’s insane.
    Even more interesting is he was trying to turn right with locked wheels when it was way too late. These are not racing driver reactions.

    1. Maybe Dani K should enter Formula Drift series judging by picture #3. Or ping pong championship.

  2. Any race image of Verstappen must be taken with Ultra Fast shutter speed.
