Hit by the Safety Car
During the practice session, Taki Inoue had spun and stalled his Footwork. It was towed back to the pit lane by a recovery vehicle and then it happened. The car was struck from behind by the safety car which was doing a demonstration lap. The impact was sufficient to overturn the Footwork and render it severely damaged. Inoue was still inside the car and his seatbelts were unfastened. Fortunately he was alright, albeit with a couple of nasty blows to the helmet. The incident was later investigated by the FIA.
