Car 106 here: Being late to the party I assessed the situation. No car seemed to be moving (although there could of course be other cars behind them that I would not be able to see). I decided the situation was stable and decided to overtake the crash site on the left. Suddenly car 83 reverses into my path, I brake but it's unfortunately too late for me to avoid the accident.

Arguably I could have slowed down to half-pace after the hairpin until I passed the incident zone, and maybe could have avoided it.

Following cars #24 and #368. I saw the incident so I slowed down. I coudnt pass #368 from left as #24 was still there not controlling his car and #91 was comming from the left behind. I hit full brakes and waived to the right to soften the impact, hoping #368 to clear the path. Things have changed and I ended up with generous stuffing from behind by #996. Holding the brake and hoping for miracle. After all this I tried to come back, but didnt realize there were still more cars coming from behind. The glitch from #996 actually ended my racing. It took more than 3minutes to repair.

I was chasing #30 down the mountain section and there was no yellow flags. At last minute i saw the incident, fully braked and tried to avoid them. To be honest i thought i didn't touch any of the cars.

Sorry for my late reply.
So i missed the brakepoint a little bit and came into big understeering. Not hitting the wall, was at that point no option anymore and i hoped the best to get out of it without hurting anybody but myself. unfortunatly and without intention there seems to be a curve or a bump in that wall i scratched along. So i bounced uncontrolable from that wall to the inside of the track and caused a hit to one car trying to overtake me in that situation. Sadly the hit caused colleteral damage because of the tightness of the driver field.
I am very sorry for the damage that happend to anybody involved but it was absolutely not on purpose and was a very unfortunate race accident.
