tdolloima big fan of F1 and this crash could of been prevented easily, vibes go to the Bianchi family
kalle.that's the truth, the tractor shouldn't have been there since the safety car wasn't out? i think that's how it should be: safety car first, then all the rescue things? correct me if i'm wrong.
and i read that he has gone through a surgery and is now resting, he can breathe on his own. he has a major head injury, FIA confirmed that too. i think that he'll make it
MiomoThere was a local yellow. Safety car was out, but he hadn't reached it yet. I'm sure he could've been going slower, but I know as much as you guys.
Beam_erWell the rain was pretty bad with lots of standing water. Now the slower you drive an F1 car, the less down force produced. With all the water on track, and under double waved yellows, the chance of aquaplaning rises significantly. I believe that the race should have been either put under safety car or red flag a couple of laps before the incident, as conditions got worse and drivers started complaining. Hopefully Bianchi pulls through, looked as though he was getting a shot at driving for ferrari in the near future
MiomoSure, if you go slower, there's less downforce, but that doesn't mean you can hit more corners. Never will you be able to better corner going faster than slower. If conditions were getting worse, than they could have either pitted and switched to the full wets, or driven slower. If you keep losing traction, go slower. From what I saw, conditions didn't seem much worse than the beginning of the race, and the full wets are there to be used, not for the race to be canceled before you need them. I hate to say it, because the guy's been pretty critically injured, but it's a matter of driver error on top of some bad luck.
kalle.one article stated that he was driving 213km/h when he crashed, still pretty fucking fast even if he slowed down
a_pla5tic_bagThey shouldn't race if they can't fly the heli out of there. At Limerock in CT they do that.
omnidataFirst clear footage.
DingoSeanSON OF A BITCH. WHAT?
How does that even fucking happen?!
hey-dude-its-mejust a novice fan but watching it live it seemed like something like this was an inevitability, one guy spun out in the first (couple?) lap(s) and there were radio communications of hydroplaning at 50mph. the whole thing seemed forced and wasn't even an enjoyable experience
kalle.just heard some news... jules bianchi has died at the age of 25 after a long battle. rip
LonelyWas about to call you an as whole for fucking around...but damn
kalle.naaahhh i'm serious, apologies for not posting a news article..
