Montreal Madness

The Canadian Grand Prix over the weekend was the most eventful one of 2007.

BMW Sauber’s Robert Kubica suffered a huge accident at maximum speed on the run down to the hairpin. Kubica clipped the rear wheel of a Toyota some 250m before the hairpin which sent him headfirst into the inside wall at some 170mph. His BMW hurtled through the air bouncing to the outside wall and rolling several times before grinding to a halt on its side in the hairpin run off. The safety car was deployed again as marshals and medics attended the scene.

More drama unfolded in this epic Canadian Grand Prix as Felipe Massa and Giancarlo Fisichella were black flagged for leaving the pit lane under a red light earlier in the race.

It ended with a fabulous maiden win by Lewis Hamilton and McLaren came away from Montreal with a 28-point lead over Ferrari in the world championship for constructors.

Hey Ivy, the video is no longer available. I think I have just watched that on TV today. The rider broke his leg or something like that.

Now that F1 is coming to Singapore, I wonder what if one of those cars slap into one of our building ... gruesome!

Hi Wilfrid!
Ooooo....I don't think Singapore will allow that to happen. Maybe lots of strong barricades. =)

Kubica, however, escaped from the accident relatively unscathed. He suffered light concussion and a sprained ankle and was able to drive himself away from Montreal's hospital!!!

BMW has proven itself to be a very strong and safe car maker. Haha.
