tkD, you don't have to care about how they look today, they'll apply mayor updates prior to Bahrein GP.

Anyway, interesting exhaust system by Renault, placing them in the sidepods, have you seen them?

Kubica has had a huge accident while racing in a rally today, he has several broken bones, especially one of his hands. It has been said that it will take a whole year for him to come back to racing.
It's really a shame, very nice guy and good driver.

^^ Yeah, really nice guy, but even if he could drive again, I think it's a career-ending crash. I don't think he can drive REALLY fast anymore. Sad news.

well, you never know. These guys are somehow mental to begin with, so there's still a hope for him to come back to greatness.

I've heard about Kubica yesterday. Very sad news indeed. He is one of the top drivers in F1, and IMO he would've been a future world champion. Wish him a quick recovery.

ps. F1 crashes are safer than almost all sports accidents nowadays.

F1 > all.

Of course. Do you guys remember Burti (Prost GP) crasinh at more than 250kmh in Spa, after Irvine (Jaguar) pull his front wing off? I believe it was in 2002...

^ This one?

(a crash like this in any other motor sport and the driver would die 10 times at once lol, especially in rally)

The name sounds kinda familiar, but I don't remember of him. Maybe it's because I started more "seriously" with F1 @ 2001 or so :icon_mrgreen:.

^^ Yeah, exactly. You could also check Fisechella's crash in saturday practice @ MagnyCours in a Jordan, 2002, maybe. That's was really really scary.

Burti was a rich brazilian guy, like Pedro Diniz, he wasn't Senna at all, you know. In 2001 I was a really die-hard fan of F1. In fact, it was probably the 9th or 10th full season I followed in my life.
