Default Video: GT1 @ Silverstone - Aston retaliates against GTR

Don't know if you guys have seen this. I was sort of dozing off to the Silverstone race, when this happened:

Since the video jumps around a bit: Westbrook makes a poor decision diving down the inside of Muche's Aston Martin, causing him to spin off the track. Muche hunts him down. The results speak for themselves.

lawl.

aston driver got what he deserved IMO. if it was an error, then a crash. if it was deliberate, then a crash.

the nissan driver didn't get out of it well either.

Hard to tell what happened in the second incident: did the GTR move over on the Aston as he was doing his pouty flyby, or did the Aston just misjudge it? The Aston guy seems to have some anger issues.

But man all of those cars look fantastic. Ford GT's racing? Yes please.

Looks incredibly obvious from both videos. GTR in car shows his steering wheel is straight ahead and does not move at the impact and the shot looking down the straight clearly shows the Aston veer into the GTR. Deliberate or accident is the only real question. I'd say accident. Maybe meant to veer on him and shake his fist but not wreck.

Sorry, it wasn't incredibly obvious to me as I didn't study them closely. The first video does not show the situation all that well, thus my question. The second one is much clearer.
