This Crash at Le Mans MIght Cause a Fight in the Pits… Ferrari Goes Straight into the Wall

When it comes to races like the 24 Hours of Le Mans, drivers are forced not only to be on their best game to rocket past the other world-class competition but also to practice endurance, making the cars and their bodies alike last a lot longer than they’d otherwise be used to! When all of these factors come into play across a whole selection of drivers, you know that something is bound to go wrong at one point or another with so many competitors thrown into this gauntlet.

This time, we check out exactly what could happen if something were to go wrong as it does and the result sends a Ferrari heading straight into the wall. It looks like things got just a little bit tight for this trio of cars as they came around the turn and with a little bit of contact, the Ferrari would get sideways and with nowhere to go, would head straight into a solid surface, essentially disintegrating what was once the car’s front end. Luckily, it doesn’t look like the impact was able to injure the driver but the car is almost unrecognizable at this point from the front and wouldn’t be able to return to action.

Check out the video below that will take you on the scene of this tense event as the cars get together and something has got to give. I’m sure that this isn’t particularly how anyone wants to end the race weekend but unfortunately, with so many machines in such a tight spot, sometimes, situations like this just so happen to be inevitable.
