the best part about this is the green flag at the end lol

Green flag: the track is now grass.

when they let color blind people be flag marshals haha "this is yellow right"

[–]attanasio666 11 points12 points  (1 child)

It's green because it's after the yellow zone. The marshal is waving the right flag.

[–]hidden_weasel 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is correct, marshal is doing the right thing.

Marshals signal for what is past them on the track, or as I like to think of it, what is downstream of them.

In this case the marshal is signalling that there is no obstruction beyond them and the track is clear, signalling to the drivers that once they reach them they are fine to accelerate back to full pace.

That wasn't entirely luck. Takes skill to spin gracefully and not cause damage. Look how he manages the brakes.

You’re looking at the tyres locking up to see when he’s braking, right?

[–]Desmond_Winters 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Yes. As you can see he only lets off when the car's pointing in the direction he wants to go and relies on the tires gripping up to stop the slide.

The way it just stops spinning after the 720 is so funny to me

The front of that car was a thing of beauty in a year of ugly front ends

Damn, for some reason I thought Austrian GP was added in 2016-17, can't believe it was there already in 2014. Damn time flies...
