I'm stuck wondering why drivers in the pinnacle of motorsports, who supposedly have a wealth of experience and talent, still insist on making bonehead moves before the first corner of the first lap. This isn't the first time, nor will it be the last. Some, including innocents, have paid with their lives.
I've seen it happen all to often in lesser series as well, all the way down to SCCA club racing during my time doing that. Not too surprising there. But in F1, I expect a higher level of intelligence. Maybe my expectations are misplaced.
There is talk of enclosed cockpits for F1 cars due to safety concerns. We'll see how that works out.
