Monza Pit Lane Incident

There was a scary incident where a HRT radio tech who had come onto the hot pit are to check faulty equipment on Sakon Yamamoto's car and was not able to get out of the way of the car as it left. The pit lane was closed as he was taken to the hospital for a check up.

(how long before this one gets pulled?)

  1. Cause a $20K fine is EXACTLY what this team needs now!

  2. really, does FOM have a copyright over every single cell phone video taken at a race?

  3. Well, one should say that the lollipop man made a mistake, that shit like this happens and it happened also in top-notch teams like Ferrari in the past.

    Anyway, I don't think that Hispania Racing belongs to F1, and I hope that they will pull out of the sport as soon as possible.

    I don't know if anyone of you guys know that, but they ran in Monza with the same aero configuration they had in Monaco.

    Why? Just because they don't have any other. Can you imagine that, an F1 team that doesn't have a low downforce option for its cars?

    F1 is an expensive arena, if you don't have the money for the job you should just quit, it will always be better than being a constant danger for the others.

  4. James Allen reported the tech ended up with a broken leg. Lucky considering
