Is Formula 1 too safe?
Damon Hill No, I don’t believe it is. We all know that huge steps have been made over the years to increase safety, but as we saw in Spa 2012 [pictured below] Fernando could easily have been badly hurt there. A driver’s head is still exposed. Things can still happen and we should never, ever be complacent – we are always looking for ways to make things safer as there will always be ways of making things safer. So, no, F1 is denitely not too safe.
