Reminded me of Bergers horrible fireball crash....same outcome thank god. Although Rossi avoiding 160kg of bike wreckage by millimetres at RBR is the luckiest escape of the year for me.
Well, I think its an absolute disgrace!
I do get the sentiment why this was born, but the "challenge" is DRIVER of the day. Now, out of some kind of warm feelings, he is driver fo the day?
Tell me; what did he do so well than??
People tend to forget, it was HE who moved over, right after the first corners; blind spot or not; he could have known that move was not really on.
The same thing with Bianchi; "ow he was such a perfect driver, would have made WC" and so on.
People forget, HE was moving 300 kph + under double yellow with standing water on the track, period.
It IS sad to see him gone, but he could have applied by the rules also.
I'm happy to see Grosjean walk out of there, no question about that, but he was NOT the best driver out there today, period.
Sainz and Norris overtaking a bunch of people wasn't entertaining to you? Does every race need to be Spa or Japan 2000 for it to entertain you?Thank goodness there was a spectacular crash with nobody seriously hurt. Without this, the race had relatively low entertainment value.
You are right. It was entertaining. I am just down on F1 lately for not doing more to make the racing even more entertaining. I am also frustrated by the hypocritical "race as one" messaging from F1.Sainz and Norris overtaking a bunch of people wasn't entertaining to you? Does every race need to be Spa or Japan 2000 for it to entertain you?
Perhaps I'm biased because we follow McLaren, but I thought it was overall pretty entertaining.
How many seconds behind his team mate?I went for Albon, he managed to get a result that was fitting of his car. Even if he'd just gotten 4th it would have been a good race. RB are giving him a lot of opportunity to come good.
I don't see why Grosjean would get votes, he managed to split his car in half and set the part without fuel and engine on fire.
On SkyF1 a question was asked which I frequently ask, why can we not vote for the safety-car and medical car drivers as driver of the day.Horrific crash which reminded me of Cevert in 1973... same kind of crach, very different outcome (Cevert died beheaded by the rail and burned to charcoal)!!! F1 has indeed done progress in security, even if Romain did have a guardian angel for this one, the high Gs shock could have easily knocked him down... Lucky indeed!
For me Perez was the driver of the race... so unlucky but what a race. Last time, lots of posters did forget Charles amazing p18 to p2 which means that lots are very biased in their choice unfortunately...
About Romain as driver of the day... I am ok with that... I watched so many good drivers and often dear ones die since the late 70 that when one cheats death like this, it is always an empathic moment to rejoice. Imagine if Halos and titanium cage were available in 94 at Imola...
