I only heard or read about it yesterday when I was traveling back home.

Those cars are built so well, but road debris is just something that can&#39;t be avoided. He&#39;s lucky that he had so much space to coast and slow down before the wall. Gravel traps ftw?

Wow, debris to the head seems to be a major issue this week. On the 19th, Formula 2 driver Henry Surtees was killed when he got a tire/rim to the head.

I&#39;ve never seen those tire walls come in handy for anything, but now that I see them in action.... way more effective than I would have previously thought!

If you don't have the time to do it right,
when will you have time to do it over again?

My god, I just saw a pic of his head and helmet right after the accident. Brutal.... the look on his face is spine tingling.

Holy Shyt! A damper spring to the head!!! Glad those helmets are tested and have some of the strictest regs to meet.
