    Red Bull were doing a showcar event in Japan to raise money for the charities supporting the earthquake/tsunami disasters over there.
    Some dumbass decides to run out infront of Buemi as he's driving!

    Uh, all I can think of is getting caught and tangled up between the wheel and the rest of the car, scary :eek:

    Luckily Buemi wasn't hurt.

    Well, the suicide rate in Japan is pretty high. Highest in the world, was it?

    They both had luck there! The guy who tried to jump over the car had luck because Buemi as an f1 driver has lightning quick reflexes so he only hit him at 50km/h, which is still a higher speed than where someone doesn't get hurt, so really lucky! And Buemi had luck because that guy didn't hit him on head! Seriously people should notice there's something mentally wrong with someone before letting him close to these cars!

    I think he was trying to see if red bull gives him wings.

    Ouch! It might have been worse if he had kicked Buemi's head!

    Pure stupid...

    Apparently, this guy did not know the story about Tom Pryce and the marshal...

    The f1 website didn't even talk about the FOTA vs FIA war couple of years ago.

    It was only a showcar charity event. Not an official F1 event.

    Perhaps he thought he actually had wings. Thats what RedBull does to ya. Gives you wings + acid to make you think u can jump over an F1 car :wink:
