Robert Kubica, BMW, Montreal, 2007While the owners of Formula 1 try to remove video of Robert Kubica’s crash from YouTube, new footage of the shunt shows just how fortunate Kubica – and many other drivers – were.

This video is shot from the opposite end of the hairpin to the TV cameras and shows Jarno Trulli and Robert Kubica catching the slower cars at almost full racing speed.
