    Sad. One less unicorn.
     
  2. Did that one blue Ferrari just stop in the middle of the road to talk to someone? Regardless the person behind always needs to be aware.

    Sad to watch

    Wow sure like to hear why the driver in the blue car stopped since that road is very narrow and seems you can’t pass there.

    You will not know the extent of the damage to the Pista until you pull it apart. Minimal exterior damage is probably hiding major damage behind. That was a good shunt up the rear so what has been moved out of place, what has cracked? Will not be a cheap repair.

    I don't know why the Pista stopped, but you're driving on a narrow road with people lining the roadway, one has to be prepared to stop and stop quickly. For me, the F50 owns this one.

    Pista was performing a standard brake check. F50 probably proud of the originality of the machine, including the tires.

    Judging by how fast they were going, i wonder if it was under police escort? Although the crowd seems to be very close to the cars...I still dont understand why the Pista stopped as the J50 clearly doesnt stop or at least not nearly as abruptly. I think the Pista owner is at fault here (yes you need to maintain your distance but stopping abruptly on a one lane road doesnt make sense..)

    Thankfully there’s video to present a pretty solid case. However, it’s very hard to ever pin it on the driver in front. Always need to be aware and ready . Hopefully the piste driver plainly admits fault and everyone moves on.

    It seems to me that pista owner slowed down to accelerate later in front of the crowd.

    Tragic for sure. I wonder how old the tires on the F50 were. Looks like a case of old hard rubber tires not stopping the car. The overhead shot shows that the F50 skidded a long way. Amazing to see that overhead shot. What a cool place to watch the event.

    Hard to say but I could see the Pista guy having gotten spooked by a pedestrian getting too close and/or appearing to be moving into the road (and therefore at risk of hitting a pedestrian). It is easy to imagine being a little nervous and focused on all those spectators and not at all paying attention to what is going on behind you.

    Surely, this car will be repaired and put back to new?

    It did not look like much damage to the Piloti, and the F50 occupants looked to be walking around post-crash OK.
    Hopefully, no major injuries...T

    It seems from the clip he is stopping for fan service to please the onlooking crowd and be cool. It didn’t work.
