Re: Info about the crash at 2 minutes
Now wathcing vids like this for entertainment is wrong and a bit weird, but it's undeniable that without the risk of accidents, injury and possible loss of life, part of the attraction to motorsport would go missing.
Most of us would have watched Imola 1994. Few would have enjoyed it, but how many were transfixed by the unfolding events? How many couldn't switch it off?
The danger is part of what makes motorsport so wonderful. Nobody wants to see drivers lose their lives, but we ALL enjoy seeing drivers risk their lives.
Sometimes, very occasionally those risks don't pay off, and bad things happen, and it's those bad things that remind us of the stakes involved, which comes full circle, and raises the excitement level the next time we see someone taking those same risks.
As humans we're drawn to the macabre, whether we like to admit it or not, when there's an accident, we watch. Where there's blood we have a look. We may not like what we see, but we look anyway.
Human nature, we're disgusted by it, but we can't help but do it.
