"Dan Wheldon's two sons shouldn't have to live with the reality that their father died because he chose a profession in which his life wasn't the number one priority" Sorry Mr. McCormick but I think that's a crock of s**t. To say that Motor racing as a whole or even specifically IndyCar as a series doesn't value the life of the participants is wrong. And not only that you provide ZERO evidence to support that statement. You site a couple of F1, F3 examples but didn't mention Wheldon's accident. Why? Because you have ZERO evidence or data that even a closed cockpit would have saved Dan. And since you mention a closed cockpit, it will not work on a formula simply because formula cars don't have doors or windows - how in the world would drivers get out the cars in some accidents? What happen to Dan and the ramifications for his family is horrible indeed. But let's not throw around damning statements and false solutions without any actual facts or data to back them up.
