Im annoyed that the 2nd race of macau was wrongly reported... i am at macau now and just watched the race and know that James Thompson who was leading race two never hit the wall, he was shunted by Farfus, hence why Farfus lost a wheel and wrecked Tarquinis chance to finish too!!! Thommo should have breezed it...

Yes, sexyracegirl, you are right, in the end of the live TV coverage of Eurosport, everybody could see from JT's rear on-board camera that Farfus pushed him into the brickwall. Luckily the life takes the toll and Farfus got out too.

Sounds like it was a bit hard to tell what happened - the cameras didn't catch it and the official WTCC report has no word on contact either. I'm assuming it probably happened though. Guess James will reveal all soon enough.

Very frantic couple of laps - shame for Thommo, but it's nice to see some unusual names creeping into the top 8 for once. Macau delivers again!

beszti,i have watched eurosport coverage and there is no onboard shots of any incident. as boo says, it probably/possibly happened. farfus was in a far faster car or else thommo was already slowing. it is difficult to pass at macau but at least agusto tried, apparently. agusto is a very fair driver and i would not imagine that any touch was deliberate. thommo does have a reputation for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, so maybe it was a blocking move by him that caused the incident. i am noemally a fan of thommo, but it would be interesting to see some actual clips of the incident, before passing judgment.

The Eurosport coverage in Macau was DIRE! (again..) Missing so much of the action, no decent replays, ad break on the penultimate lap, loads of shots of nothing at all.. I remember a similar story at previous Macau meetings... Coverage of WTCC at other venues this year has been good, must be a different (useless) director at Macau?
