We’ve already had a topic on career saving drives. But what about career saving injuries?
Obviously I don’t mean drivers injuring themselves and helping their careers with that, but others.
For example, Glock’s injury in Suzuka in 2009 – it saved Kobayashi’s career, he had no money to continue in GP2 and was planning a return to Japan to work in a sushi restaurant, but he got 2 races in Toyota because of Glock and he got a Sauber seat, which he still has.
Kubica’s injury is likely to save Heidfeld’s career, who would probably not return to the sport, but now has a great chance of a great season, even the title is not out of reach.
Then maybe Massa’s injury in Liuzzi’s career (Fisichella replaced Massa, Liuzzi got the Force India seat which he had for around 25 races).
What are the others?
