I do wonder if D'Ambrosio's failure was related to this - possibly with parts sourced from the same supplier? The Virgin's failure was much scarier as he was halfway past a Hispania on the run down to the last corner when it failed just as he hit the brakes. Could have been a nasty accident - it happened at Spa a few years ago when two cars were side by side on the run to Les Combes, and suspension failure pitched one into the side of the other. Might've been Button and Baumgartner but can't remember.
