Multiple points - 1) Jeannette has reported several times that his head NEVER hit the ground despite what the camera angle implies. 2) I've watched MANY touring car races and have seen many near flips when cars have locked wheels. Given the speed and angle of impact(speeds have been estimated at around 100mph for the Porsche and 130mph for the DW), the place on the track where the cars go lite over the hump, and that in it's current mandated configuration which is almost open wheeled at the rear, its impossible to say that no other car would've flipped. To imply otherwise is just another bout of DW knocking. 3) TO say the GT driver did nothing wrong is just BS. The opinion on many other sites is either he made a late decision to enter pit lane or spun the tyres on the outside rumble strip which caused him to pitch sideways - also this was PRACTICE not a race!
