They really did leave the lid on…
Watching the video, I don't see any rain covers. It looks pretty clean to me.

I wonder if it was down to it being an engine problem that we know they have.

It's also interesting the video was leaked - to my knowledge this is unprecedented. If you were the pilot or a member of the air crew and saw newspapers essentially blaming you for the crash, but you knew it wasn't your fault. You may be tempted to leak the video of it to give your side of the story.

Would he have been able to abort the takeoff?
It looks like thats what he/she tried to do.
