Its been a harrowing 2 weeks Seb. We have all felt this, especially those of us who were 'best fans' of Marco and Dan.

I think its safe to say all are ok in F1.

Now the only thing we don't need is for Sham to continue his get ahead or crash attitude because this is not a game and people could get hurt badly even in F1.

Are they ? I don't see any improvement since Massa's accident... It can very well repeat and can easily end up worse with another part involved (like a tyre or a wing part)instead of a suspension spring.

@tealeaf, it takes a pathetic loser to try find the opportunity to bash a certain driver on top of the deaths of Simoncelli and Wheldon.

Tealeaf has a point there. It's a dangerous game and any small avoidable accident could be fatal, for example at Suzuka the way Hamilton turned into Massa before the chicane could have cause 1 of them flying into the fence so it's no joke.

Tea leaf and equinleaf. Quit watching f1 it's going to give you a heart attack. All the what Ifs the two of you are proposing indicates your need to watch paint dry. Very safe and easy to watch and Understand

Regarding Seb's point about the cars being too far away and the runoffs bringing complaints. It seems a small inconvenience compared to loss of life and limb.
On the other hand, there are still some of the best tracks with walls, and I would miss them if they were closed. Watching the races on the telly with today's cameras are for sure a better show than the track. To bad the pay for view is going to run a lot of fans off anyway. PS, Murdoch is fixing to screw U.S. fans using Direct TV too. 40% increase, or Speed is gone
