Keep in mind that this wasn’t a case of Massa hitting it once and that’s it. Those suspension are made to take punishment and if the Ferraris are breaking after one thump on a curb that low, then they’ve got some problems. The reason I support these curbs staying is because it *does* take repeated transgressions until you wear the car out. This is no different than preserving tires. Do you keep laying down lap after lap to get some quick ones in or do you play it safe and avoid the curbs? Or do you just build a stronger car?
Also, I understand a broken suspension is dangerous, yes, but notice that that area has plenty of run-off. Not to mention clipping the inside and breaking the suspension on that side means that the weight will not be on that wheel and does not mean an immediate spin. The driver will be able to control the accident to a much greater degree.
Yes, we cannot be so bloodthirsty as to desire crashes, but we DO need SOMETHING to dissuade how far the drivers dip their wheels off the course. That is the purpose of a curb. They keep cars from kicking more dust and dirt onto the track while defining an edge which says “you can take your car no farther than this.”
