Former F1 and current WRC driver Robert Kubica crashed out of the Monte Carlo Rally today with this agonizingly slow crash. Watch how quickly his day gets ruined on a patch of icy road.

Former F1 driver Robert Kubica crashed his way out of Rally France this past weekend, but not before setting the fastest time out of anyone in the event on Special Stage 15. It appears Special Stage 15 takes place in a Grimm fairy tale.

It always rains in Malaysia. It didn’t rain in Malaysia yesterday. Never underequipped when it comes to show biz, Formula One bridged the precipitation gap with a flying Russian (above), a jinxed Brit, and an old rivalry rekindled. A fun race—for second place. Warning: spoilers.
After a winter off-season extended by the cancellation of the Bahrain Grand Prix, Formula One finally returned on a windy autumn afternoon in Melbourne. Four months without a Grand Prix, it would have been a fun race even if it weren’t fun. But it was fun. Warning: spoilers.
