    While we're digging up late 90s backmarkers: that Williams looks like it was designed purely to be driven by Ricardo Rosset.

    90s backmarkers would probably be quicker. When I looked up Marques I saw he had three top 10 finishes in a Minardi which outstrips Williams over a similar period.

    In other news I finally got round to watching some Drive to Survive, even in the first two episodes the running theme seems to be lolling at Grosjean which I highly approve of.

    Oval racing and helicopters, not even once.

    I don't understand how, in the pre-safety era, everyone in oval races didn't just die within three or four races. Unless they did. I'll have to do some research.

    28 according to Wiki, with no more than 7 in a single decade. And they weren't slow either, average speeds were up in the 180's by 1970.

    My guess is stock cars of that era were inherently safer than an open wheel/cockpit prototype which was likely knocked up in a shed using twigs and papier mache rather than being hollowed from a block of Detroit steel.

    Yeah, those stock cars weigh a ton. Like cruising on a Lincoln Continental. I bet that most deaths were due to no Hans device. Many more ways to die in open wheelers.

    Nice, I normally skip ahead until I can see cars moving, he clearly quite enjoyed saying 'Great American Race'.

    I've figured out who he reminds me of. Giant mitts.

    ...He's got famously small hands. Half the republican primary was about how he had tiny hands and a small dick.

    He displays them so prominently, though. Like he's honking a pair in every speech.

    500 was good but man I thought Ryan Newman died for a solid hour. Was furiously refreshing twitter for info, I just hope he's not Schumacher'd or worse.

    I don't approve of twitter's 'Dale saved him' sentiment. Dale hated the HANS device.

    He sure did, but, it was mandated after Dale, so on some level I get it but...

    You also have to take into account almost 90% of NASCAR fans are sentimental spiritual types who likely think Trump was sent to save America by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Himself, so.

    I don't think the hans would have saved him from the worst part of the crash, the uprights/roll cage around the window did that.

    The main headline from testing is that Giovinazzi now has a ponytail.

    They just posted Ryan Newman walking out of hospital with his daughters. Unbelievable.

    Seen someone tweet about him earlier (Ross Tucker I think) but I’ve no idea who he is.

    Oh sure sorry we were talking a little about him a couple posts back.



    I'd start around :30 to get a full idea. This is the very last lap of the race.

    I thought for sure he'd be dead or at least severely, severely injured. This man is walking out of the hospital 2 days later.

    Shit yeah you’d be lucky to still be intact at all after that.
