I like how casually he leans back and crosses his ankles to take the picture.

But not just him - where was the guy taking the video perched?!?!?

Sure it looks the pansies that run out of the way! I would do the same thing; I mean, come on, he's standing behind a concrete wall!! He knows he's safe, that is why he didn't flinch--he picked that spot for a reason.

Well done, dude. Not only ballsy, but smart!

I think at 0:22 you can hear someone yell at him for being a 'cold blooded' journo photographer - (I'd bet it was a notorious crash spot, and like #5 said, he picked it for a reason) - then he says "sorry, sorry" as he passes the camera.

The circuit of Ireland drove past my house years ago. My strongest memory of the whole thing was seeing a complete windscreen sailing through the air towards me from a car that hit a wall after taking a corner too fast.
