Formula One went into a moment of shock on Sunday at the Japanese Grand Prix. With Typhoon Phanfone hitting the Suzuka track, the drivers were in for a nightmare. The race was eventually stopped, but unfortunately not before Jules Bianchi crashed into the crane. Many drivers called for the race to be started earlier in the day and a few including Felipe Massa were screaming for the race to be stopped prior to the crash.
Adrian Sutil’s car collided with the barricade which resulted to the crane lifting the car. Surprisingly, the yellow flag was not waved and instead the green flag was, leading to the assumption that the race officials saw the conditions good enough to continue normal racing.
Here is the video of the crash.Published 07 Oct 2014, 12:58 IST
