This is why they call these races "crash & burn"?




But have no fear, we got a secret weapon:

Yes, I hope that driver was okay!


That is just as disgusting, construction-wise, as the disintegration that killed Villeneuve.

Survival cell? Apparently some builders don't learn, since that photo is much newer....

It's a computer modded picture.

The legs are from a mechanic working underneath a car.

Another clue is that a Ferrari F1 car (of that era) has never raced at Laguna Seca....

McLaren

PS. Look at the name where the Marlboro sponsor should be...

I've only just seen this thread. As skidmarks said it was a crash about a month ago and the tub sheared off amazingly without injuring the driver. The car was returned to Ferrari for them to examine this extremely worrying behaviour of the carbon fibre chassis.
