Click above to watch the video after the jump

The guy in the black suit can't say he wasn't warned. After last week's incident involving Sebastien Buemi at a Red Bull demonstration in Japan, you'd think that anyone within earshot of an F1 car would be wise enough to get the heck out the the way when one is coming towards you. But evidently this guy didn't get the message. Or he just had one too many Labbatts.

Those who were watching this past weekend's Canadian Grand Prix (once it got back under way after the rain abated) may have caught this, but for those who weren't watching, it's a sight to behold. One of the race marshalls, stepping out onto the track after waiving the yellow flag to help clear the debris from a previous incident, slipped and fell. Not once, but twice. In front of Kamui Kobayashi's incoming Sauber-Ferrari... which is not a good place to slip and fall.

Follow the jump to watch for yourself, and try not to yell berating obscenities at the screen while you do. We dare you.

      Yeah, I'd say he used up about three of his lives there. Who's the clot in the STR coming through the corner on boil and locking up his wheels even though the flag marshal was in the corner waving the yellow flag furiously?

          Well, it looks like he hasn't tried running for a good few years - if not a decade - and both his thighs and coordination were overwhelmed by the effort...

      It's "marshal", not Sarah Marshall.

      Wet track + low tread shoes + heavy in the middle guy + fast movement = slipping on the track. It was quite a wet track, other than the racing line (which got drier as the race progressed). So, its understandable. At least it wasn't a cock-up like Vettel.

      he's from Canada, they say he's a little bit slow, eh? Entire race was marshal fail. How is it that the rest of the world hire trained proffesionals, and yet canada manages to scrape together a crew that couldn't pass a cub scout entry test? They were all portly, and throughout various videos of the race they took more dives than an itailan world cup squad.... Then again, this from the country that has track days with no helmets/saftey marshals and WRX's borrowed from freinds that roll on hay bales...

      More proof to the world of how fat we are in North America. We can't even find people in good enough shape to be race marshalls.

      I'm not sure what all the bitching in this thread is about. Is being a race marshall some highly skilled job? Obviously the guy tripped and fell because it was wet, it was on a yellow flag so he was just trying to do his job. It ain't that serious it could've happened to anyone.

        He may be a troll, but I must say, I'm in complete agreement. With that being said, I'm going to take my Ephedrine, caffeine and aspirin dose. :)

      Jeebus this commenting system sucks. As does the idiot slipping on the track. Twice. If I were their insurance company, I'd drop this race from coverage based on gross negligence.
