Found this video of the crash, all I can say is now I know why he is bad shape. Also seen that there was picture showing a green flag waving and not a yellow.

Think there is going to be a serious evaluation of the way the track promoters and F1 handled the whole weekend knowing of the storm coming in. The race could have been raced right after the morning support races on Sunday instead of waiting till 3pm local time.

That was a savage crash, I hope he makes it and would truly be a miracle if he does.

I agree with Alain Prost on this one, that boom truck should not have been on the racing side of the barriers. Any vehicle other than an open wheeled car should never be on the track or within the safety barriers. They used to have full size cranes everywhere around a circuit but obviously cost a lot of money to have there but you can't put a price on a life. :(

I haven't watched the video of the incident but I was casually watching a recording of the race.

My first thought when I saw the "crane" which looked like a wheeled heavy construction earth mover was that the race was over.

Parking that thing in what is obviously an impact / runoff zone at any time with a hot track let alone during a wet race is unforgivable at a remove you and your offspring from the gene pool level.

I don't see a problem with the green flag waving at that station as it indicates the condition of the track *after* the station, not before it as noted above. The reports I've read said there was a double yellow out at the preceding station per FIA regulations. FIA flagging rules are a bit more complicated than our local stuff but the general idea of sectors remains the same.

Some would ask "why wasn't the safety car out?" That might not have helped because drivers will always go as fast as they can to catch up to the pace car, regardless of conditions (from Lemons to SCCA to F1). I also read that there was nothing the promoters could do about the start time as trains, traffic, police, and other plans would have been impossible to change (plus Bernie has to justify and keep his TV $$$).

IMO, it's a freak accident in many ways (weather? did Bianchi lose downforce from slowing down too much? rivers across the track forcing aquaplaning? ran over debris causing tire failure? rear brake failure from hybrid system? are we afraid to say Bianchi made a mistake? so many things...). Even if the crane wasn't there, it would have ended badly for Jules. Remove the cranes as a result of this accident and people will just complain about too many periods under control of the pace car. Put steel sheets around the crane and you have a nasty head-on accident waiting to happen.

Racing real cars at any speed is always going to be dangerous. Not just for the drivers but for the workers at the event. I just hope Jules does not pay the ultimate price and will recover from this...I have a soft spot in my heart for the F1 teams and drivers that don't race for a profit margin.

Sorry guys wasn't really trying to start any thing here. I just seen that video and thought it worth posting, explained what happened for the crash part anyway.

I was just commenting on some of the things that the commentators where saying during the american broadcast. It could be nothing more then a horrible mistake on a drivers part or something caused him to go off track there. I don't know and will wait for informed information.
