It wasn't that the Simtek was a dangerous car, Ratzenberger's accident happened because he'd previously gone off track and damaged his front wing and decided not to pit to replace it, and Montermini's accident was a result of inexperience. Whilst the Simtek was probably a difficult car to drive I don't think the car can be blamed for those accidents. Apart from those 2 incidents I can't remember the Simteks being in any other smashes in 94

Dont know how the Simtek could be 'dangerous'.

So too was the Williams, lets remember Ayrton Senna (RIP) was killed in it.

Not to mention Barrichello who was lucky to survive the crash in the Jordan.
