Why isn't there anything in the contract to stop their drivers from racing in non-team sanctioned events by now?

Sure the team allows personal sponsors to subsidize driver salaries and those can have they own requirements, but there should be a way get around that given Kubica's condition.

With the profound lack of testing available to these guys, how else are these guys supposed to stay on the edge?? Don't forge, these guys are racers, it doesn't matter what they're racing.

What would you have said if he'd gotten a serious ankle injury stepping off a curb into the street and twisting it??? "Why isn't there something to stop these guys from walking...?" in which case they can drive a car and have someone skip an intersection and hit them.... Or they could just have a heart attack, slip on a wet floor etc etc etc etc etc ad nauseum.

My point is, accidents happen. Just because they earn big salaries, doesn't mean they can't be allowed to have lives, only human after all...
