Her wiki report says she clipped a car and spun , easy thing to do but at that track at that point it could have been fatal.
I think there's a possibility , looking at her record , that she's been promoted up the ranks too quickly and the reason for that is that she's a girl
and the FIA want to tick that box.
the problem was a badly placed 'sausage' kerb which acted as a launch ramp, it doesn't matter whose driving was at fault,
the problem here is those stupid curbs that no one likes and now causing an accident like this, hopefully they'll stop using them.
She clipped a car because he had slowed down out of turn 3 for a false yellow flag. Reports are that as she came out of 3, that the flag was already
down. She did not know the other driver had to slow because a track Marshal put out a yellow flag. After contact with the other car, her car suffered
damage that caused her to lose control while breaking for turn 4, it put her car in a spin, contact with another car sent her airborne. The errant
yellow flag, perhaps radio communications, are the primary fault. They are still investigating but that's what I see, a track Marshal too quick with a
flag and no warning to her.
Because she could not brake, but the others could. Also, you can NOT slow down a car as long as it is airborne. It´s not working like that in real
life, it might have worked in GTA vice city (it did) but physics still disagree in real life.
