Scuderia Toro Rosso driver Sebastian Buemi crashing into crazed fan

A crazed fan attempting to jump over a moving Formula 1 car at a Red Bull sponsored exhibition event in Japan this weekend was captured on video spectacularly failing to complete his dangerous leap. Driving the F1 race car was Scuderia Toro Rosso driver Sebastian Buemi who luckily was only doing about 30 mph when the fan ran in front of him.

As the video footage reveals, the fan's legs clip the top of the race car, causing him to stumble onto the side of the track. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured, with the fan, thought to be a hired marshall of the event, getting up and walking away after.

Perhaps he drank too much Red Bull and thought he suddenly had wings.

The Formula 1 circuit is taking a short break this weekend as teams prepare for the next race at the 2011 Canadian Grand Prix on June 12. Stay tuned for our full coverage of the upcoming race.

  1. lol what a clown

  2. What's the going price for a F1 rear wing these days? At least he could do is cough up the cash to replace it. LOL yeah like that will happen.

  3. Darwinism at work: he has just enough brains (though not the dexterity) to take himself out of the gene pool.
