One thing that I noticed that at the moment that the lights went out at the start, the pit wall was virtually deserted. It would seem that nearly all the team personnel scurry back to their garages to watch proceedings from their TV screens. Maybe if some one had been on the wall, they could have told/motioned for Plato to back up an inch or two.
Can't see much off the pit wall, plus only a couple of people on it. Some of them tend to head out the back of the garage to view the back half of the circuit.

During the start of a race only marshals are allowed on the pit wall. Teams can cross the pitlane and come on to the wall when the last car has gone past the end of the pit exit.

This is done for safety, and having been on the pitwall when a collision happened on a DTM race start at Donington Park it was a good job there were not more people on the wall.

Makes sense. Plato's Subaru made a hell of noise when that impacted the wall and became banana shaped...
