    I still can't understand why he swerved so aggressively - in the little bit of sim racing I've done you would be crucified for a move like that during the first few corners of a race. I am very glad he's OK but I would like to hear his answers on that, because we can talk about barriers and car safety all we like but if the bloke driving it is a fucking liability then that needs scrutiny as well.

    Stoffel Vandoorne or Esteban Guttierez I think. Pity they can't stick someone like Perez or Hulkenberg in it really, I'd be very interested to see what they could do, especially as they're both already familiar with the Racing Point " Mercedes rip off".

    I was glad/amazed to see Grosjean escape from that crash alive. But he does have a habit of causing stupid crashes despite being a director of the Grand Prix Drivers' Association. The one yesterday was entirely of his own making. I wouldn't be that concerned if he didn't drive in the final two GPs of this year and his career.

    True - I admit that I wasn't quite on board with the pundits yesterday saying that the barriers should never split apart like that. To my mind of you have a barrier with even the tiniest of gaps in it, then there's a possibility that a car travelling into it at the speed of an exocet missile might happen to catch it in exactly the right spot to open it up.
    I suppose at the end of the day the safety people just have to anticipate as best they can and make a judgement call. If we agree that the barrier failed to do its job yesterday then I think we can safely say that the halo did its part.

    Not as good at breaking down barriers as Romain Grosjean 
    Sorry I couldn't resist....

    A good point made by somebody yesterday is that the cars are relatively heavy now. Maybe twenty years ago the barrier would have held but the car would have been destroyed beyond the bulkhead. Maybe even an extra row of tyres would have prevented the worst of yesterday?
    Anyway the survival cell stood up well and presumably the fire could have been extinguished before Grosjean became deep fried frog. He probably did the bulk of the damage to himself getting out of the car.

    On of my bugbears about these new F1 tracks is that they have such wide tarmac runoff areas that they lack any sense of character and also any sense of danger, meaning that drivers can go like shit off a shovel, relatively secure in the knowledge that they aren't likely to come to any harm if they do lose it.
    ...right up until you get a unique set of circumstances like yesterday, an accident that probably wouldn't occur again at that same spot on that track if you held another 1,000 grands prix there.
    I'm almost starting to think that the older more dangerous tracks might ironically be safer in some ways because the drivers are more respectful and more careful - I wonder if Grosjean would have veered across the track like that at Spa or Monza for example.
    Then again, the last 2 fatal accidents in F1 and F2 have both been at old school tracks so I am probably talking out of my arse. I just hate featureless, characterless tracks.

    For me, yes. Fuck them. I used to fly all over the world, losing my weekends to travel, spending all week away from my wife and home, and doing a job that stressed me out no end. I earned a lot, I paid and generated a fuck load of personal and business taxes for the government.
    And I just don't see what I was getting for my money and for the impact on my home life and mental and physical health. So I decided to vote with my feet. In business I always had the approach that a deal needs to be mutually beneficial to both sides or it will either not get made, or it will end badly at some point in the near future.
    The UK government do not understand this. They think you're just a bitch to make them money. They need to be taught otherwise, and the only peaceful way to do this is to withdraw your participation.

    Just had a look... eeek
    It actually happened twice yesterday (people running across the track), once in the Grosjean incident and then right at the end when Perez caught fire.
    While still mental, the first one wasn't quite so bad because it happened at a time in the race where the cars were all in a similar position on track, the later when it was spread out.

    Been a bit slack on this thread for a couple of days - skimming for a quick summary it looks like more and more people are coming to the conclusion that Trump fucked up and didn't do anything even though he was shouting about cheating for months/years before the election. In which case if he was relying on nothing more than the US legal system to counter the crime that he knew was going to happen, I agree, he fucked up.
    Then I jump forward a few pages and we're talking Special Forces storming a CIA facility on foreign soil, nabbing a bunch of servers and the Kraken is now a crack military unit and not a super computer. Is that about right?

    I thought he was dead when I saw it happen.
    Changed my mind about the halo as well.
    A family friend Brian Wallace died in a BRISCA F1 crash when his car pierced the barrier and the top part hit him in the head. F1 stock cars were always thought to be one of the safest forms of Motorsport as the cars were designed to crash.

    That's interesting, because according to our Virgin EPG the race hasn't started yet...

    No, Shazam actually references them.

    My best guess is that the MSM can't miss seeing and subsequently the opportunity of ridiculing them, thus unavoidably spreading the message that the lawsuits exist.
    Or could be the words actually mean something. Cannot believe they were real typo mistakes.
