Agree ,thankfully they've increased the strength of the rollcages + made the Hans device mandatory over the past few years.

Crickey, that really was a monster crash

I'm amazed they walked away from that one

Wouldn't have looked out of place on an 80's stuntman show

the hans device is a harness that clips the back of your helmet either side to a neck brace worn over the shoulders, it stops the whiplash forward movement,

That must affect your driving speed when you get in a car again. Can make or break careers depending on your out look.

I know I was not too keen on corners after zigging when I should have zagged about 5 years ago
