What on earth was RIC doing reversing into KVY at Baku? Could he not see him in his mirrors? I find that hard to believe. I can only think he didn't check his mirrors and thought Kvyat had already gone? There was certainly no malice; RIC isn't that kind of driver.
Some insights would be appreciated.
Or you could ask "Why did KVT just sit there and not move off when you
would have expected ?".
Listen to the radio from each driver. It is all pretty clear from those
The last 2 clips.
Thanks for the info and insights. Speculating, but looking at KVY hand actions
on the wheel after stopping, I speculate that selecting reverse may be more
complex on the Torro Rosso car than the Renault. He had to take his right hand
off the wheel and (it looks like) press a button on the back of the wheel,
maybe to bring up a menu, and then (presumably) select reverse. By that time,
RIC had reversed into him. KVY was quite slow to react it seems.
