@richard - While it is easy to admire Niki for his bravery it is also kind of a slap in the face to the fans when someone as respected as Niki belittles the sport that we love by stating that it is " just driving around in circles". Perhaps it was just a poor choice of words. I think that you know that I am not a Hamilton fan but imagine if he had made a similar comment. Most of us would skewer him for it and rightly so. These are such different times. One has to wonder if any of the current drivers would be willing to take the risks that drivers took in the 70's and 80's. Even Massa has the benefit on not remembering his crash. Taz is right, Kubica is the only one who has been put in that situation.
