Meh. I’ve given Maldonado as hard a time as any about his on track behaviour, but I think he can be forgiven for trying to show off what an awesome machine an F1 car can be and just overcooking it a bit on an undoubtedly very slippery surface.
As Adam Cooper said on twitter, he’s hardly the first driver to crash his car during a demonstration run (interestingly, he’s removed any and all tweets about the incident; possibly because he thought better of the kinda lame joke he also made about it being Hamilton’s fault?). I mean, the first hit for “F1 car demonstration crashes” videos? That paragon of consistent reliability, quick Nick “safe hands” Heidfeld. It was only last year when Buemi crashed his Red Bull in a demo run.
