Whew. Perhaps this is what Victor Martins told himself, helmet screwed on his head and rather well protected in case of accident. This is not the case of the firefighters who had burst onto the Monaco circuit this Sunday, in the middle of the Formula 2 Grand Prix after Michael Doohan's accident.

The safety car had burst onto the track, allowing the intervention of firefighters. At the turn of a corner, Martins (21) avoided them at the last moment with a stroke of the steering wheel on his right. All bark and no bite. The Franco-Portuguese driver, who competes in F2 with a French license, received a penalty for drive-through.
