Here's a little piece of advice for everyone: If you're at an F1 event – whether it's a grand prix or a demonstration – don't run in front of the race car.

You'd think that would be pretty common knowledge, but one spectator in Japan evidently didn't get the memo. At a demonstration event held there by Red Bull Racing, a spectator ran out onto the improvised track, right as Sebastian Buemi drove by.

Fortunately, the pedestrian appeared to have been drinking his Red Bull, as he jumped at the last second to avoid what could have been a more severe collision. Both he and Buemi – a driver for Red Bull's Scuderia Toro Rosso "B" squad – were reportedly unhurt in the incident, which recalled mishaps that were all too common in the old days of rallying, but is something you hardly see in the tightly controlled environment of Formula One.

Follow the jump to watch a pair of videos showing the incident from different angles .

      The title of this article should be "idiot collides with F1 car while trying to jump over it" rather than saying that Buemi collided with him. Hopefully his testicles were removed so he can't reproduce.

      What a ****ing dumbass. The guy was lucky it was an F1 car and they can stop on a dime(and he jumped over most of it). He ran into the road like he was a deer.

      Idiot timed it just right. He see's the car coming and he runs to get in front.
