Is For­mula 1 too safe?

F1 Racing - - THE FEATURES -

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 denitely not too safe.
