“Luck and skill”

May 23, 2013

One lucky bird had a very lucky escape at Monaco this morning, when Carlin’s Felipe Nasr came within centimetres of wiping it out at the Swimming Pool.

Appeared to have chosen an inconvenient resting point just off the apex of the chicane exit, the bird made a swift upwards as Nasr caressed the kerbs.

Despite reaching safety, the bird was flipped over before collecting itself as Nasr drew into the distance. While this will do little for Nasr’s weekend, it was a very nice piece of footage, showing both the agility of the animal and Nasr’s soft touch through the chicane.
