Billybob its Formula 1 not Gladiator. Even they wore body armour and helmets
The biggest advantage of the research in Formula 1 is that it goes to your passenger level vehicles
carbon ceramic brakes being one.
The cage in a Formula car has slowly filtered to supercars and taught us a lot about how to create safer
everyday cars besides the driver doesn't really have an option to not drive a car.
Risk minimisation is a great idea for the driver to live and the Formula 1 manufacturers to not payout
tens of millions of $$ in payouts,The lessons of Ayrton Senna seem to be forgotten already if we have
another dead driver. I want bloody fierce competition not blood on the racetrack.
As a Schuey fan in his heyday I would be turning off F1 forever if he ended up dead because F1
wanted to save a few $$$. There is a thing known as workplace safety.
