Junior Senior should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
P100 in F3 homologation row

The Oulton P100 fire truck is in the official results in MN today, looking at the reg plate, should it have been in the scholarship class?

Obviously he was "optically challenged" if he drove straight into a stationary F3 car!

Sounds like he has a furture as an observer or race steward!

no need to shout

but yes. piquet had been hit by thompson (who has a habit of driving into stopped cars - isn't that the second this year??), and he was pulling off, but the firetruck mis-guessed which way.

apparently.

no the fire truck was taking avoiding action by going down the right side against pit wall because the rescue unit was on his left and piquet came across in front of him we new f3 drivers never use mirrors

Oi! Bella!

"a habit of driving into stopped cars" is hardly fair on our boy Andrew! Two incidents ain't exactly a habit... that's almost as bad as one of the commentators on F3on4 who said, when Nelson won the first race at Silverstone something to the effect of "...and Nelson continues his winning streak by winning his second race in succession..."

Anyway, Andrew was unsighted on both occasions. So there.

Yeah, 80's style Sierra nose in a mid pale blue colour, go faster stripe (I think) and now a black felt pen drawing of an F3 car with #33 written next to it.

Definitely a hit'n'run accident. Maybe the crew thought Piquet Snr was going to jump over the pit wall and lynch them... until they remembered he was away at Goodwood that day.

Having seen the TV footage it seems strange that neither the Rescue and Fire Truck slowed down sufficiently to check that Piquet was OK after being hit by Thompson.

Piquet did the right thing by moving the car over to the right hand side. He would have been slated if he had just parked it in the middle of the track and hopped out.

STUPID!!!

Neither the rescue nor the fire truck needed to slow down to check that Piquet was alright cos he (a) had been waving his hands like a maniac, and then (b) was actually driving his car!!!

Having seen the TV footage myself, it was clear that, firstly, Andrew only slightly clipped Piquet's car - it was hardly a massive shunt, although it did do some damage to both their cars, but it didn't slow Andrew down at all or knock him into a spin or anything. Piquet remained where he was - stalled on the grid - but just managed to start the car as the fire truck and rescue vehicle were bearing down on him.

Like the complete idiot that he is, however, and without indicating his intention to do so, he pulled over to the side of the track directly into the line of the fire truck which was doing what it was supposed to be doing, i.e. following as fast as was practicable the pack into the first corner - ready in case anyone had a REAL accident.

And Piquet pulling over would only have been the right thing for Piquet to do in any situation if he had checked behind him for oncoming traffic.



Pah! and Bah!

Having now seen the footage, I have to ask, Why did the fire truck think it would fit between the F3 and the pit-wall? Even if Piquet had stayed where he was, it would have been a tight manouever for the truck to pull off at speed he was going.
