Honda teammates collide on last lap of BTCC race – Click above to watch the video after the break

Uh oh, looks like someone just got Red Bulled. Don't know what that means? Remember back to the 2010 Turkish Grand Prix, in which the Red Bull racer driven by Mark Webber was leading the race with his teammate, Sebastian Vettel, right behind in second. It appeared to everyone watching that the famous energy drink's team would earn the first two spots on the podium, but it was not to be.

Vettel dove to the inside in a daring and dangerous maneuver and collided into his teammate. Vettel's day was done, Webber managed to finish the race in third. Stupid.

So memorable was the incident that it's now become a verb. The latest set of teammates to pull a Red Bull? Matt Neal and Gordon Shedden, who race matching Honda Civics in the British Touring Car Championship. On the last lap of the second race at Oulton Park on June 5th, Neal, who was in second place behind his 'mate, decided he deserved to take the win. His passing maneuver, though, ended in tears.

See for yourself in the video after the break.

      At 1:17, it seems like he locked up his brakes, and which was part of the reason why he he hit his teammate on the outside. That said, you can tell he still tried passing... on the final lap, near the last corner, when they had a 1+2 lead. Wow.

      Once you pull a Red Bull like that, you immediately want to Southwest. "Wanna get away?"

      I just don't understand why some people have to be SO DAMN STUPID!! I'm surprised Matt Neal hasn't already committed suicide.

      No, his brakes didn't seize, but his brain did. I'm sure he realized the stupidity of his move and pretty much just wanted to cut his wrists at that point.

      That looked like #2 was trying to throw the race, he didn't even try to move after he hit the gravel! Or maybe his brakes seized? Huh, right after #2 bumps #52 you can see he's steering away, so maybe it really was just a mistake after all. YOU DECIDE. :p

        he carried to much speed deep in the corner so by the time he hit the brakes super hard they locked up right away and he was locked up sliding
