@jackisthestig While it may seem like only a small accident, 150kph is still well over 90mph. It seems slow by F1 standards, but there are still pretty big forces at work. Let’s face it, most people who slam into […]

“Maybe you would have a catalogue of penalties that any judge can choose from. That’s like the real world out there. Sometimes people try to make Formula One look so complicated, but actually the situations are very similar to the real world.”
“We have seen already that our rivals are relentless in their efforts to close the gap. As a team, it is up to us to rise to that challenge: to take that relentless mentality to an even greater extent than those around us.”
“The judge back in 1971 described him as ‘altogether extraordinary’, which is one of the nicer things said about him in Panorama’s Bernie Ecclestone: Lies, Bribes and Formula One (BBC1, Monday).”

On this day in F1
On this day 20 years ago a special FIA meeting was held to review the disastrous events of the San Marino Grand Prix in which Ayrton Senna and Roland Ratzenberger were killed and Rubens Barrichello had been injured along with several spectators and pit crew members.
Meanwhile the sport continued to come under fierce pressure from worldwide media to respond to the two fatalities. In Italy the possibility of a homicide investigation into Senna’s death was raised.
Italian defence minister Fabio Fabbri told a crowd in Venice: “I hope the murder of Imola is punished. The Formula One world is worse than the gladiator’s circus.”

@jackisthestig I also recall those conditions catching out no less than Fernando Alonso and Kimi Räikkönen, so two small mistakes (one with little consequence, the other unfortunately quite a lot) is hardly a […]
