Nothing about this image looks right. From the bike's attitude to a poor Jack Miller who's just trying to hang on. A crash in the making.

The most WTF crash of the year so far. The London ePrix was a wild one, with both championship contenders crashing on the first lap of the final race of the season.

Chosen not so much for the quality of the photo but by the sheer height. Incredible he wasn't seriously injured.

Another "he's lucky to have survived this" crash. Fernando Alonso's crash at the Australian GP was a heart-stopping moment for all of us.
