Whoo that was too close for comfort... all he could do was that quarter snap to horizontal or he would have been done for. Great piloting!

Yeah, it was good to recover like that but IMO he should have never put himself in that position. An even better pilot wouldn't have to recover like that obviously.

It looked to me like he had a very similar situation to Adilson Kindelman's crash a while back, only Hall was able to recover in time. If they don't put themselves into those positions, it would be difficult to win due to the layout of the courses...
