  • OT Rubens Barrichello OK after crash, flip...

    http://www.speedvision.com/pub/artic...1/020119b.html

    "Unfortunately, Barrichello was at the wheel of his Ferrari F2001 when he performed the flip, going off course at nearly 150mph, hitting a tire barrier and cartwheeling in the air before coming to rest. The Brazilian is said to have lost control of the car at the penultimate corner of the Valencia track and skidded into the barrier."

    Those guys are much safer in races, most of the huge wrecks happen while testing, where there might be fewer safety people.

      They have had some big wrecks lately in F-1. And why are so many guys flipping when the hit tire barriers? Why isn't something better being developed? Bernie rakes in millions and millions, but the most money they will spend on protecting the drivers is on worn out old tires.

        Instead of a thoughtless soundbyte why don't you speak of something specific?
        No racing organization in history has taken the steps and spent more money to further driver saftey than F1.

          Recently, I would agree.
          We flipped our finger to the King of England
          Stole our country from the Indians
          With god on our side and guns in our hands
          We took it for our own!
