Here’s what former Formula 1 driver Antonio Pizzonia is up to nowadays… crashing in Stock Car Brasil
Patience and caution are equally important when trying to recover from a spin during a race, but both of those were ignored in this huge Stock Car Brasil shunt.
Contact with Tuka Rocha sent Pizzonia off into a spin through the grass and his stock car swept back across the track, facing the wrong direction.
Instead of reversing off the circuit or waiting for the field of cars to pass him, he decided to just turn around and rejoin the race straight away. Doh.
As he pulled forward to turn around, his car was slammed into by Lucas Foresti, who could do nothing to avoid the huge Chevrolet Cruze Stock Car in his way.
It resulted in a big hit for both cars and others were also collected in the chaos at the Velopark track. That’s definitely a masterclass in how not to recover from a spin…
