It appears his friend knew the track.
If so he should have LED Devon around vs trailing him.

Reminds me of going to Barber last year. Guy crashes coming out of T3 on the first lap of the first session. Then after the red flag for that, I go out and follow a friend for two laps then run off going up the hill in T4 on the next lap. Luckily I kept it up.

Could be that his friend wanted to watch Devon go around, so he can point out things the noob can work on improving.

Regardless, guy should've taken it easy. Plain and simple.

I'm not sure I would really want a guy to advise me on how to run the track safely when he is trying to do wheelies in the pits.IJS

Whatever you do, don't straight Devon! You just might give those cones a good scare.

That's possible, but I would think you'd want to do that after he learned the track.
Difficult to work on form when you don't even know the corners yet.
