    The chances of that happening are so slim, poor poor lad. At first I couldnt see what could of killed him. But then read the BBC report.

    The heart goes out to his family, but he went doing what loved the most. Cant ask for more than that if it is your time to go.

    No mate, the first cars wheel flew off onto the track and hit Surtees, you can see his car go straight on at the next corner with his foot still planted. The car is still full on as the steward comes to the car. I bet the first guy feels like do do, its a dangerous sport as we've all just been reminded.

    RIP

    That's terrible. Haven't they learnt yet with these wheels coming off? It's what killed Ayrton Senna too.
    Change the car design. Encapsulate the driver.
