I've just seen the bit on Autosport about Sir JYS saying there needs to be a permanent tribute to Prof. Watkins.
While I can't disagree I've been more struck by Webber's comments on his monthly BBC column which mentions the Spa spills and moots whether enclosed wheels and would be better than enclosed cockpits given how rare intrusions there are there these days. Would enclosed wheels, or more enveloping Sports Car Can-Am type bodies reduce the numbers of wheels touching tread on, and bouncing around hitting cars, drivers and others after shunts?
Just a thought. Not wishing to seem disrespectful, I just think safety has taken a bit of a back step and the FIA and others seem to see some disconnect when it comes to driver standards and safety. I see this as an opportunity to make safety improvements. We have seen some dodgy stuff go unpunished in F1 this century.
