If you haven’t been watching Porsche’s Road to Le Mans YouTube series, you should be. We said earlier in the week it’s basicallyDrive to Survive but Michael Fassbender, and we meant it. Hell, we checked on the #93 Proton Competition 911 RSR more often than we did the winning Toyota, piloted by ex-F1 talent Brendon Hartley.
You develop a parasocial relationship with Fassbender, which is what makes the series work so well. Just like the F1 drivers in Drive to Survive, you root for Fassbender because you can identify with a man pursuing his dream.
So when Fassbender lost control of his Porsche 911 racer during qualifying, we winced as the car smashed into the barriers at high speed. Based on the footage, it looks like Fassbender locked the brakes up, sending the car sideways into the wall. Thankfully, he was unhurt. But plenty of heartbreak lay ahead of the X-Men star.
