Anger at Silverstone – Click above to watch video after the jump

Contact during racing is typically accidental. Sometimes, however, you can't call a crash an accident when one of the drivers involved clearly looks like he's out to inflict a little pain. Just such a crackup occurred during a GT1 race at Silverstone this weekend when Aston Martin driver Stefan Mücke was a tad unhappy with Nissan GT-R driver Richard Westbrook.

About halfway through the race, Westbrook attempted to cut inside of Mücke's Aston but the GT-R had no room, and instead went into the side of the British racecar, sending it spinning off track. Mücke regained control... but not his composure. He caught up with Westbrook and... well, click past the jump to watch the clip.

      The Nissan driver made a foolish racing move, the Aston driver attempted murder. Ban from racing forever.

        Stefan Mücke is the money man in the 007 LMP1 car, Aston better hope he doesn't have his license yanked before the 24hrs of Le Mans this weekend.

          So in the video from 1:29 in the background the GTR is going in the straight and the Aston just catches up and hits him? Maybe there was a stiff cross wind?

      The British didn't colonize the entire world by being nice.

      You know if these guys have no respect for their expensive race cars and decide to go in to murder mode with them I'll gladly give them my dueling pistols in exchange for their cars.

      C'mon, punch the driver after the race if you want; but to wreck your car in getting revenge? That's the epitome of cutting your nose to spite your face.

      I would say that's more of a blow to his own team that spend thousands of hours building and preparing his car than to the GTR driver.
