Buemi Drives Wheels off Red Bull | Bull in a China Shop

Under heavy braking approaching 5g, Sebastian Buemi's Red Bull ditched both front wheels simultaneously from 200mph.

A suspension upright was blamed by the team. The stress on the opposite component caused by the failure created the simultaneous shedding of the wheels. Why did not the wheel tethers prevent the wheels from flying off? Because they were held on the uprights!

His team mate was withdrawn as a precaution.

This is big news in China and the puns are flying.
