Bummer, so glad he appears to be ok, though. At least it wasn't on Canada Corner or uphill from Turn 5, where there's no straight length to land & slide like at the RA start/finish.

Aerodynamic forces are really astonishing sometimes.  Just a little bit too much negative pressure on the front of the car and up it goes.  Amazing!
