Come on guys. This is racing and yes, it's very dangerous.

Very sad to lose such a young guy but this was in many ways a rare accident.
An extra chicane in Eau Rouge (and Pouhon? and Blanchimont?) would spoil the thrill of this legendary circuit. And basically of F1.
Remember how safety measures killed the great old Hockenheimring? Nowadays a very clinical and boring track.

What bothers me about the incident though is that drivers were blasting flat out through the runoff area. The fatal collision even took place in the runoff area and that is crazy.
