He should have been looking where he is going. I hope he is forced to
pay for the repairs.

That should never have happened - there should have been
barriers and hay bales to smooth the exit from the corner,
if they weren't prepared to prevent parking there. How likely
is it that there were "no parking" notices but the blue badges
ignored them?

Not very, from various reports it seems the car was parked correctly
in a bay reserved for disability badge holders and had been since at
least the previous day.

That seems to point to a worrying lack of foresight on the part of
whoever organised that bit of the course.

And I suppose you think F1 drivers should follow the 'Only a fool breaks the two second rule' mantra.
This was negligence on the part of the race organisers/marshals.
