    I was watching the race this morning. They conveniently failed to show the actual impact stopping the replay right after the tire came off. They did however say he walked it off.

    During the tv broadcast they wouldn't show it a second time for fear the guy was dead.

    The American telecast implied that the cameraman was ok. In fact he was flown to a hospital with a concussion, a broken shoulder, and broken ribs. Ya, those wheels carry a lot of force, even at the low speeds in the pits, and Red Bull has already been fined 30k pounds for the incident. Horner came out with a statement something to the fact that "the pits are very dangerous" and he was glad "nobody was serious hurt". Hell ya the pits are dangerous when you release a car without a wheel nut on it. And how the hell does he know that dude won't live with pain the rest of his life from this incident?


    And ya, I hate the Red Bull team, I'm a huge Ferrari fan. :)

    Everybody in the pit lane should be required to wear a helmet. The pit crew does for good reason. And there should be no non-essential personnel in pit lane. Mount the cameras on towers and do long shots.
