Let’s face it, standing with a sign in your hand in the hot sun can be dangerous, especially when your daily caloric intake consists of a Red Bull, two stalks of celery and a piece of lettuce (without dressing, since that’s for fatties). This grid girl, working an ADAC GT Masters race, found out the hard way that locking your knees isn’t a good idea, either.
The driver, Ronald van de Laar, repeatedly asks his crew member to check the car after the grid girl falls on it. I’d like to think that I’d show a bit more compassion, perhaps making sure the girl is still breathing before I worry about the car. I guess van de Laar is more focused than I was, which is why he races cars for a living and I don’t.
