Formula One is one of those sports that no matter how many precautions are taken could go horribly wrong at any moment. And it almost did for one unfortunate race marshal at the Canadian Grand Prix at the weekend.
There has been a little crash and some debris is covering the track. It’s at this point the race marshals have to race into action to clear the crap away before it damages any of the trailing cars.
Unfortunately one of the marshals isn’t too graceful on his feet and kind of swan dives onto the track. Which would be funny on any occasion but is more so because there are a line of superfast F1 cars queuing up to run him over.
He just about manages to get back off the track in one piece, but I doubt his pride will have survived quite so intact.
