Watch: massive IndyCar crash
If you don't like swearing out loud at an electronic rectangle, do NOT watch this video.
It was taken at yesterday's IndyCar warm-up race in Baltimore and shows Tony Kanaan losing his brakes at nearly 300km/h. He launches - literally LAUNCHES - off fellow Brazilian and best mate Helio Castroneves' car, narrowly missing a race marshal.
Incredibly, after he's finished straightenin' the curves, Kanaan, the marshal and Castroneves didn't sustain any injuries. Even more incredibly, Kanaan had his car repaired and went on to finish third in the race, with Toowoomba's Will Power claiming the win and narrowing the gap to series leader Dario Franchitti.
Now watch. It's mental.
