M . Schumacher , Barrichello s former team mate turns 43 today .

Isn t that great that Barrichello 40 and he 43 give hope to so many young drivers, who hope one day to leave this sport alive thanks to the amazing and unrecognised work of or engineers scientists,designers.

Safety in F1 has been amazing in over 20 years considering they are driving bullets.
Poor A. Senna was unlucky.

Yes its great isnt it Enrico. Soon they will need to add a docking port to the sidepod for Rubens' zimmer frame. Great that the youngsters can hope to survive 20 years in the sport, but not so great they cant hope to find a vacant seat.

As long as they have Maldonado seating in one of those cars Williams have a problem. I would rather have Sutil or Senna in one of those seats bringing 1/3 of what Chavez pays them and Barrichello for the other seat and keep my dignity and willing to win again than showing to the world I need money from Venezuela to survive.

When I saw that Patrick Head was leaving Williams F1 I automatically believed it was over RB. I may be wrong and it may just be a coincidence. It's no secret the frustrations that Williams have had last season. It's their worst result for years.
I think RB will certainly be able to assist the development of the new car but I think he has lost the "Eye of the Tiger".

enrico. ayrton was unlucky? i doubt that. at the time ALL drivers accepted the risk of fatalities. in ayrtons case he made an elementary mistake, brought on by a new driver being faster than him. certainly it was very sad, but if you make a mistake, then you must accept the potential outcome.

Senna was driving an inferior car and he was always a fatal accident waiting to happen,

But what i mean by death being bad luck, because as described in Senna the documentary an by S. Moss who would have had access to informations not easily available to the public, was by the way he died with a peace from the right wheel case punching through his helmet like an ox in a slaughterhouse.

No amount of safety could prevent 1 in 1000,000 accident.
He was reckless, yes very much,,,,more that Lulu.

enrico. the williams was by no way the inferior car! senna went there as he wanted the BEST car. and the williams was way ahead of the benetton at that stage.
had he not made the error, he would not have been hit by the suspension. unlike massa who was hit by a piece coming off another car.
there is minimal head protection in an f1 car, and if you want to call it luck, good or bad (massa/senna) then thats ok. but you cannot make luck! but you can minimise the chance of an accident.
ps stirling and the documentary did not state anything that was unknown. the suspension coming through the helmet was known from the first few seconds after the accident.
