eddie. the wheel nut problem was odd. webber was racing BEFORE the wheel nut came off, and it came off when he was driving at slow speed, having lost hydraulic power to his gearbox (result of crash????) so it looks as if there may have been a failure in the nut itself, rather than just poor fitting. there is supposed to be a wheel nut lock to prevent that sort of thing, but most now use spring fingers on the nut to hold it on. maybe these failed?
