    It’s like he didn’t even try to make the corner.

    Well, that was a bit of a mess – at least a lot of the cars look relatively intact, so we might have several making the restart. Hope someone youtubes the coverage later, or I’ll be watching the replay on Tuesday night…

    Lemme guess. Johnny Cecotto Jr.

    In fairness, it didn’t look like Cecotto meant to brake that late, but it doesn’t bode well to his reputation.

    I know Cecotto didn’t do it on purpose, but he is the one that caused it. When will he get his act together?

    Probably when the stewards get around to penalising him.

    @prisoner-monkeys So true… In Malaysia and Barcelona that is, not for this pile-up.

    I saw that crash coming a million miles away.

    That’s remarkable foresight, given that it is only about 300m from to the first corner.

    Anyway, Sam Bird recovered from needing repairs to win the race, ahead of Kevin Ceccon and Mitch Evans.

    Palmer’s not happy:

    Well, we all know what the stewards’ response will be – Palmer gets a penalty for the improper use of social media, whilst there is no action taken against Johnny Cecotto.

    In my opinion the following drivers are to blame:

    Cecotto: outbraked himself and ended up with Leimer on top of him. Not clever, but it can happen – it’s not near as bad as the thing he did in Spain.

    Ceccon: he was the one that rammed Bird ‘Schumacher style’ at the apex of Ste Devote, but it didn’t seem as if he had outbraked himself. In my opinion, what Ceccon did was much worse than what Cecotto did and I’m surprised no one seems to be picking up on this.

    Leal: must have seen the Ceccon/Bird crash in front and the Cecotto crash to the left, but still he didn’t slow down enough, which forced him to run wide and take out Palmer to his left. Again, his action was worse than Cecotto’s imo.

    Also, Haryanto stalled his car when he tried to pass the carnage, which I thought was pretty funny.

    The problem is that everything Ceccon and Leal did came about as a direct result of Cecotto’s accident. If Cecotto had made it through the first corner, Ceccon and Leal would not have hit the other cars.
