There is a reason why Citroen Amis does not race in Formula 1, and why only drivers with a lot of experience compete.
Footage released overnight from the streets of Monaco shows Ami rolling onto her side after attempting the Grand Hotel hairpin, part of the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix track.
YouTube channel Newsclick share a video of the accident taken from two different angles.
The Citroen was seen driving up a hill before coming back down, tires screeching.
This sharp corner is one of the slowest corners in a Grand Prix, and some F1 cars slow down to 48km/h to successfully take the corner. Ami’s top speed is 45km/h.
The video shows the driver going down a fairly wide hill as it starts to lean on two wheels.
Her small tires were unable to maintain traction on the road as Ami gasped for air before crashing on her side into a bollard.
Ami is classified as a quadricycle, and therefore does not need to have safety features such as traction control, anti-lock brakes or airbags.
As a result, none of these features are offered on the 2.4m long Citroen, which has a 6kW electric motor and a 5.5kWh lithium-ion battery.
