An ongoing look at the people, places and machines of the worlds most demanding open road race.
It looks like Shanahan was trying, unsuccessfully, to get out of the way of the faster drivers. On a closed course, it's better to hold your racing line and let the overtaking drivers take the corner away from you. That way there are no surprises or indecision.It looks like Jourdain is waiving "Thanks for your help" as he passes :-)
Then again, Shanahan may have been aware that he was losing fluid onto the track and he was trying to stay off of the racing line. Also, that's probably what caused him to spin.
I'm sure Shanahan looked in his mirror and said, "Please tell me that yellow Volvo has a V-8." lol
