 Must have been awful to stand watching that knowing your mate was in there.

No excuses for the other drivers not to stop and help, bet there were afew guilty consciences afterwards.......

very sad indeed. The decisive factor as to wether the marshals should have helped turn the car over was this - was the driver still alive. There seems to be at least 1 account of him screaming and begging for gods sake get me out of here..(by the driver who was trying to help).if thats true, then those who didn't help have blood all over their hands. If the poor guy had perished before, then obviously there would of been no point, and it would have been lunacy to risk further lives trying to save a dead man, but i suspect he could well have survived the initial crash because of his suit and roll hoop. Only the 2 men on the scene know if theyy heard a man screaming or not.

After that delightful video, youtube presented me with the 1977 S.African GP accident where Tom Pryce ran a marshal over at 170mph, complete with 40lb fire exstinguishor - OMG what a mess. I won't link to it cos frankly, i wished i hadn't watched it but you know what its like when your board and its a click away.

i think its discusting that the marshalls took so long to get over there and still didn't do much when they got there didn't even bring a fire extinguisher! i see it all the time at brands hatch fat lazy marshalls strolling over like they haven't got a care in the world

Saw a fellas engine let go at Silverstone a few weeks back...as he rejoined the track out of pitlane, just after copse. He had cars wizzing by him as he pushed it to the side, unassisted.

Fates a funny thing - look at what happed to Kieth O'dor (son of Janos of Janspeed) in his RHD Primera on the German touring cars - how unlucky/sad. If hed been in a Lefthooker like the rest he'd be here today
