I may be wrong here, but it looks like the Porsche’s left-rear got slightly over the edge of the circuit on exit which caused a small oversteer moment, and that is why he veers to the right so suddenly. The Delta Wing does seem to have some fundamental design flaws with regards to stability in an accident situation though. I would also think about painting it bright orange ro something so that other drivers see it easily.
I have to say, after watching the Schumacher / Senna incident again, that I do not blame Schumacher for his anger at Senna. Although only a slight movement, Senna did move right which would have caused Schumacher to assume he was covering the inside line and therefore the best way to pass would be on the outside, only for Senna to move back onto the racing line. Schumacher tried to come back in, but the closing speed was too much. If Senna had stayed on the inside, Schumacher could clearly have braked later (Senna would have been on the marbles and therefore HAD to brake earlier), and Schumacher would have cruised round the (cleaner) outside / racing line. The rule states that once you move to the inside, you cannot move back to the racing line. It does not provide details, such as how much movement constitutes a move to the inside, and therefore I would have to say that Senna played a big part in the racing incident.
Looks precisely like the BAR001. Found this picture where the BAR seems to look exactly the same.
I have followed many drivers over the years, as I have never been a big team supporter. I tend to follow those drivers whom I think demonstrate amazing driving skills. I loved Senna, followed Schumacher for a while, was always in two-minds about Kimi, and now follow Lewis. I am really pleased that Alonso is back on form, that Vettel is in a car that allows him to demonstrate his skill and hopefully Lewis and Jenson will have a car which allows them to use their own skill to challenge for wins. This is going to be an amazing season.
