Sigh what a let down. With Ferrari's high tech system glitch in the pits to Massa hitting the barrier to Kimi crashing. What a total let down! But the track was amazing. Saw what Barrichelo did? =D Accidently threw his glove into the sea =D

F1 car is crazy. It can hit the barrier and the whole car will be left with just the main body and the driver in it. Despite it being this fragile, it is so efficient in dispersing energy that the driver never gets hurt badly. I'm sure they learn this lesson well after 1994 with Senna's death and 1999 with Schumacher's broken leg. XD

Sennas death was caused by the front tyre hitting his head when he crashed into the wall. Most of formula one safety features are taken from other leagues. For an example the HANS, invented in the 80s was only made mandatory only after Dale Earnharts Death and the introduction of that device into NASCAR.

The Cockpit was redesigned to be uncrushable after former-formula 1 driver, Zinardi, freak accident in the US open wheel series CART which saw both of his legs amputated by an incoming car after a collision.

I remember the Zinardi one. It was pretty terrible and it happened right before the F1 Italian GP (probably 2001) not sure. The Ferrraris painted the cars red and used a black nose cone for that event. >.<
