    is it just me or did the driver that appears to have caused this little mishap also choose the worst possible location ever to park afterward?

    1. Flagger seems to have taken his time getting out the yellow flag (even accounting for the slow motion film)
    2. Notice how the driver of the flipped car actually sticks his hand out and touches the track surface as his car rolls over?

    Crazy!

    Flagger is *technically* after the incident, under F1 rules he'd be displaying a green, not yellow.


    In this case it's still good for him to show a yellow since they will see him before they see the incident.
