Footage has emerged from a chilling moment after the Singapore Grand Prix when Australian star Mark Webber was almost run over by one of his fellow drivers.
FIA officials were not amused, and slapped both drivers with a large fine, while Webber also received a 10-place grid penalty for his misdemeanour.
Webber has branded the punishment 'comical' and many fans agreed, but this footage suggests that the punishment for neglecting safety was probably pretty fair.
Britain's Lewis Hamilton said after the race that he had very nearly "run over" Webber, adding that he'd not have any issues with drivers giving each other lifts so long as it was done safely.
This footage shows how dangerous it was for the Aussie to leap on the back of Alonso's Ferrari, however.
With Alonso's car having stopped on the racing line immediately after a sharp corner, it's just lucky that nobody was hurt. Easy to see in this light why the FIA have now issued instructions to drivers not to give or take lifts.
Not that things like rules tend to bother F1 drivers, of course. Motorhead wouldn't be in the least surprised if the new guidelines were taken as a challenge for drivers to offer as many lifts as possible to each other between now and the end of the season...
