It was the 1990 WSC Group C 480 km race at Montreal. Ground effect sucked up a manhole cover and destroyed several cars. Brun sued the track owners, who I guess was the city council.

Check out the list of drivers, an amazing list of big names.

The drain cover just before Grosjean ran over it at approximately 170-175MPH.


And seconds later, Massa inches away from running over same cover while Grosjean is still spinning out ahead.



Regarding the positioning of the drain cover, it's in a spot where the water pools. So it has to be there to drain the standing water. And in Malaysia, there's a lot of standing water when it rains.

Yes, agreed.

Cover has now been welded shut. Again.
And some of the other covers have also had some extra welding.

Well we got out of that one. It's rare these things happen, but they need to make doubly sure they are welded shut in future

Random pop up drain covers....a more exciting concept than DRS to liven things up.

I like the new wing mirrors, they might give Vettee the edge he needs, to beat Lulu and win the the WDC, in the last few races of this season.

Didn't Bernie once consider a sprinkler system, to liven up GPs? I wonder if this could be part of that system, with the water coming out of that manhole cover and they forgot about it?

They should award the pace car with a 94 place grid penalty for changing too many drain covers.
