I think it was actually avoiding the tree, but either way it was poor driving.

Yeah, it was the tree. The car was carrying dignitaries wanting to see the action up close by all accounts.

Crazy indeed.

Doubtful after that accident and finishing the stage. Petite Kahunas I'd have thought more accurate!
