Daily Telegraph rates F1 death crashes ‘top video’ (updated)

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

The Daily Telegraph picked footage of crashes that killed two people as the second best video on the internet.

This morning’s Telegraph links to a Youtube compilation of F1 crashes that include footage of the incidents in which Paulo Ghislimberti and Garahm Beveridge were killed.

Ghislimberti died after a multiple car crash at the start of the 2000 Italian Grand Prix. And Beveridge lost his life at the 2001 Australian Grand Prix after he was struck by a wheel that detached in a collision between Ralf Schumacher and Jacques Villeneuve.

The Telegraph described the footage as: “Painful yet addictive”.

Update: The Daily Telegraph appears to have removed the video this afternoon and replaced it with another. As the video is still on Youtube, where the newspaper linked to it originally, it seems that it has been removed because of the nature of the footage and not because of a copyright claim.
