Massive accident in Formula 1 today in Bahrain

Roman is one lucky guy today, he went to "H ell and back", check YouTube to see some very vivid and disturbing videos from today's race.

They incorporated the fuel tank, into the survival cell?!?? Seems like one would want that to come off with the backend.

It is attached to the exterior rear of the survival cell. I think the intent is to put in the center of the car so it is protected from impact as much as possible. The car breaking in half as the HAAS car did is evidently rare. Sky Sports commentator Martin Brundle a former F1driver, made a comment that he hadnt seen a car break in half for decades.

Roman still in the hospital today (01.Dec), and already telling media he wants to get back in the cockpit this weekend ...lovely wife, three kids, millions in the bank....

"What on earth is he trying to prove?" ...his wife should show up by his hospital bed with a "jerry can and matches" and ask him; "What did you just tell the media?...are you F*** kidding me, what's wrong with you? don't make me test this hospital fire system..." 😋🤣

Crazy accident, he's a lucky boy. If I was him, I would take that as a sign and leave while I still could. I know Romain still wants to race, but his time in F1 is over and I really think he should stick with his initial reaction NOT to go to Indy cars. He has 3 kids and he just cheated death, go and live your life. He has a good enough personality to become a pundit for at least his country for F1, and maybe even join the Sky team, but I would hang it up altogether after this. He's out of a drive anyway and he should walk away at this point. That's my opinion but c'est la vie.

Yeah you know, I like Valterri and all, but I think Merc is making a mistake by waiting so long to bring George Russell into the fold. Russell is super fast when testing in the Merc and judging by the way he got to F1 with dominance, they are waiting too long. Ocon is not the one for them, you can tell by the way Ricciardo is outperforming him. Russell is their future, but they should have brought him at the start of the 2021 season. Why have a young driver academy at all if you don't intend to bring young drivers into the factory drives? Russell could be 'the one' for them.

Anyway, my opinion.

I guess Alonso is signed for 2021, Good to see him back he is a likable guy, although I don't think he can compete with young (crazy and reckless) talents like Max, Sainz, Russel, Lando, Albon etc
Most F1 comebacks didn't quite work as expected. He must be bringing some good sponsors with him (yes it's all about money unfortunately)
p.s. they better prepare some lawn chairs along the track for him

Of course Toro Rosso does not exist any more and Verstappen last drove for them in 2016. How's that for being nerdy.
