Marshall Becomes Big Black Pylon After Falling on Track During Canadian GP [Video]

The weekend’s Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix had a little of everything. There was a two hour rain delay and even some racing. And we’re not talking about a stupid fast 18,000 rpm parade, but a down-to-the-wire, pass on the past lap, OMG Schumacher might actually get on the podium, oops, no he didn’t kid of race.

It almost also included the near death (or at least severe injury) of a track marshall who perhaps had tipped back a few too many Molsons during the extended red flag portion of the race.

All joking aside, the marshall trips and falls while attempting to pick up track debris and then stumbles again. Missed by one car, he then seems to catch his breath on track, before another driver is forced to lock up the brakes and avoid a collision.

Enjoy the video after the jump. It’s both terrifying and comical:

  • Simon

    Looks like he pigged out all his life and never done a days work.
    He need to lose weight and be more agile.

  • Ray

    Agree with Simon.

    I would expect to see something like that at the local race track with amateurs, not in Formula 1. Even tho he fell, he took to long to react and move out of the way.

    Good thing nobody was hurt!
