    Something good came out of this tragedy. Sounds like a very solid solution.

    While I agree with the safety aspect of a twin-lock wheel solution, I don't agree with an outright ban on camera crews.
    Maybe it could be modified a bit to place them at less risk.
    Most modern circuits have an overhang above the garages, why not put them there and in the area between the pit boxes.
    That'd allow for really great unencumbered top-down filming, wherein audiences would see every corner of the car and all the action during pit stops without risks to camera crews.

    To me the addition of the extra securing device suggests that the ban will be withdrawn, and camera crews allowed back in as normal.
