The track filled with rain mist from cars in front of Zamparelli surprised him with a group of cars clustered together at 150 mph. But the 19-year old racer missed a slowing car that like a shot appeared in front of him out of the mist. But here interesting things didn’t stop – Dino’s car got on a grass passed two more and then cleanly brings his car under control back on the slick track.
Of course, not all of the Youtube wathcers were as impressed, pointing out that Zamparelli may have also missed a yellow flag, telling everyone to slow down. Zamparelli defends himself in the comment thread on YouTube:
"Actually just to clarify – we had already passed the incident that caused the yellow flags and for the safety car boards to come out. If you look at the car ahead, he was actually pulling away from me up eau rouge, because we were trying to catch up to the safety car. Someone then slowed down on the straight line after eau rouge and that caused everyone to bunch up...so my reactions were not to a yellow flag situation, but to another incident which had just occurred"
However, the one comment seemed to sum up the whole breathtaking experience:
"Almost died, gained 3 or 4 places in the race. Standard."
