Was watching that live when it happened. Obviously makes sense in hindsight but at the time it was all very odd. Thought there must've been oil down somewhere.

Yeah, I'd say (hope) that a burst of rain came down more quickly than the marshals could get the lack of adhesion flags out. They were able to push hard even just one corner earlier. Was a shame, it took out a bunch of the leading title riders including Aron Canet who busted his wrist.

Didn't see this one posted from last year, Another Spa incident, that last driver would be a goner without the halo for sure
Women's F1 when it started to rain and still on slicks

duck me, that's crazy.
Yeah I saw it last night but that angle wasn't one of them.
Although one of the commentators did mention he thought that it was a visor that came flying off in the crash.
Didn't realise it was flicked off by the back wheel!
That is mad!
Very lucky boy.
