No, that's "Jungle Boy" Antonio Pizzonia... which is why he was driving the Jag. And probably yet another reason why he *wasn't* driving the Jag F1 car at the end of the year.

First and foremost, he didn't seem to comprehend he was driving a SEDAN and not the F1 car! Entrance speed was WAY out of the park! He may have forgotten he had SEDAN brakes too.

Other than that, PunchIt hit it. I can't believe he flubbed the turn-in that bad! To do a two-step on turn in like that is so "amateur," and not something an F1 driver should be pulling.

I *love* the reaction of the passenger in the shot of their faces. Once they're into the braking zone he says, "No way," or something like that.

I'd hazard a guess to say that if the passenger was driving, they'd not have crashed!

Ok... now, considering how bad he flubbed the entrance speed, what could he have done to mitigate the destruction?
