I have mentioned Depaillier's death in testing because the catch fencing was right next to the barriers where he got killed and they were supposed to be rolled out before hand

Streiff's accident where poor medical aid meant he was paralysed to this day

I've heard about Williamson's death where the marshalls simply watched him burn to death


As for scandals it does tend to be some form of cheating where teams and drivers appear to use underhandedness to gain an advantage which generate publicity for f1

As for driver's deaths - it was like a common thing in 60s and 70s and was not until JYS started pushing for it that things were imrproving.
