mr fill. would it be a good idea to have a Pirelli hit a Michelin?
seriously though, this camera work is all part of the spectacle that the viewers want to see a nd that Bernie is determined to provide. years ago, photographers stood at every corner of a track, without the aid of barriers or even straw bales. I don't know if any were injured, but we saw some great photos of fangio, moss etc, coming within inches of the camera.
some tracks now use overhead cameras (Silverstone does too), but maybe a couple of extra fixed cameras could be wall mounted at each pit box, to provide us with the required shots?
whilst saying all that, the wheel went through the merc pit crew and macca (I think), and didn't hit anyone. had it done so, the injuries would have been the same. it is not sensible to have a knee-jerk reaction to a one off event, but possibly there should be a limit on the number of persons in the pits during a race?
