Totally not his fault.

Bad tire selection,

...Phil didn't call the note properly,

...wrong diff setting,

...the gearbox was acting up,

...the steering didn't feel right,

...too much rebound in the dampers,

...too much dust,

...his driver's suit wasn't tailored properly.

Don't forget the weather conditions. After all, the track was wet. :rolleyes:

But on a more serious note, it's luck he didn't hurt himself. He could have very easily hit his head or gotten his leg under the rear wheel of the car.

But it was funny to see him booking after the car trying to catch it. :eek:

That cheered my day up :D
I think the reasoning is that the new '08 WRC's have such an improved aero package with the cars that he was carrying too much speed and didn't compensate for that when he did the dismount :)

That's gotta be really embarrassing ...

But we can all learn from his mistake - next time you decide to remove your ass from the roof of your moving car to re-enter the cockpit be sure to hit the ground RUNNING. And not just RUNNING, but running FORWARD!

OR maybe just slide in through the open window.

It's not a BIG deal. It's just fun to pile on a showboating whiner when he screws the pooch that's all. :D

^^^ WOW - kinda harsh - I thought it was funny - - no one (other than Petter) was hurt - what's the big deal?
maybe harsh but anyone who let's the car drive on it's own is a bit of a fool.
Same as the famous videos on youtube of guy riding on top of his pickup and hitting a light pole and other one of another guy doing a donut in a BMW at what appears to be an AutoX event, and getting run over by his own car.
Just as Petter's video, they all have a bit of idiocy in them.
