F1 » FIA to study closed-cockpit concepts

A bigger MotoGP-style windscreen strikes me as the best compromise as it would not compromise extraction time in case of fire. Perhaps there's a material out there which is see-through, strong, yet compactable or easily removable by the marshals. Hopefully the technology is out there and can be thoroughly tested and introduced to save lives. Innovations such as the HANS device and the SAFER barrier have made a great difference - injuries from debris seem to be the only regular major danger now.

IndyCar » KVSH Racing fined over Bourdais' underweight car

Strange. On the one hand they let supposedly bigger sports like NFL dictate their season timings. On the other hand they make things totally artificial by not penalising technical infringements with anything other than token fines. Even a gram underweight will give a performance advantage, so £$500 sounds laughably lenient - how much money will the team make from the extra attention and exposure from the win? Makes me think a series that neglects its soul to chase a new market will get neither (only 5000 fans at Fontana)...

F1 » Six of the Best: The hardest records to beat in F1

de Cesaris would struggle to make a comeback. Despite medical advances in recent years, death remains a significant handicap. Interesting stuff despite my nitpicking. I think the trend of 'youngest-ever' records tumbling and 'oldest-ever' records being fairly locked is common across multiple sports - imagine Rooney playing professionally at 50 as Stanley Matthews did, or Alastair Cook playing internationals in his 50s as WG Grace did. Records requiring an even and unpredictable field, or a team with dominance being willing and able to fully exert that dominance, also seem untouchable with the modern nature of F1. IN a modern context, winning a race after Q1 elimination would probably match Watson's accomplishment, but I can't recall anyone coming close here either.
