Rejoining A Race Track At Full Speed Was Always Going To End Badly

Tarmac run-off areas are meant to make motorsport safer, sadly, some drivers instead see them as Mario Kart-style short cuts. Here’s what happened at the start of the GP2 race in Sochi when a handful of drivers decided to skip over the chicane at turn two and rejoin into the speeding pack.

The worst offender was arguably Artem Markelov, who completely ignored the chicane designed to help cars safely rejoin the track and hit the inside wall.

The race was red-flagged and later cut down to just 15 laps due to fading light.
