Yes though in the case of Didier Pironi it was in a power boat? off the Southampton port caught out by a huge wave wash from a tanker...some had a poor view of safety then and lived and still live dangerously even off the track.
Look,even recently now Andrea de Cesaris (yellow wheels) killed on a motorbike in Rome...
