Without a doubt the most influential person in the history of F1 is Bernie Ecclestone.
a series where every 3 races either at the track or in another series a driver is killed. would the TV executives actually wanted it
Safety standards increased in all areas of life and continue to do so. Watching an Indy 500 from the 60s, I looked up the grid and of those 30 drivers some 13 had died within 5 years of that race alone. Motor racing is inherently dangerous. The danger involved is part of the thrill for drivers and spectators alike, although times have changed and death as an outcome of an incident has become less tolerable.but was that enabled by Jackie Stewart because he made the sport viable if they kept at the death rate (according to BBC) they had 29 f1 drivers died in 1960s which is 29 in 100 races. a series where every 3 races either at the track or in another series a driver is killed. would the TV executives actually wanted it
It's reasonable to vote for Schumacher. After all he is the sports most successful driver.
Michael Schumacher is an international brand much like Senna, he is known worldwide.but Jackie Stewart revolutionised Circuit safety. Sid Watkins in JYS words "He was responsible for more life saving than anyone else". Charlie Whiting had huge influence on all F1 on track matters for 31 yrs & we saw his loss when he died at start of 2019 season. Bernie Ecclestone transformed F1 in the modern spectacle you see now & Adrian Newey transformed Car Design still best you can get after 30 yrs in F1
Schumacher was very fit before Senna was known to the wider audience, so it's unlikely he 'gained' the idea from Senna.before we get on with my main schumacher improved fitness but he didnt invent the wheel. its nothing that senna wasnt already doing as he had a very strong training regime & that will be where Schumacher gain the idea because to beat your rivals you have to match their training
It was his job. It's what he had studied and was trained to do. Pointing out that a doctor saves lives is like saying a waste management professional collects rubbish. It's trivial, it's their job.saving lives & creating medical facilities that we have now, is trivial you must be on the wind up. because cant believe anyone could be so extremely heartless & be serious. saving lives is not trivial it is not 1 of those things, maybe you should find Mika Hakkinen on twitter tell him saving his life in 1993 was trivial or jules bianchi was 1 of those things . in sure they'd would chuffed to hear that.
How did he get lucky, I thought you were making an argument for Watkins? If we are relying on luck we might as well get rid of the safety standards which involved the work of Schumacher too.sid watkins made more progress in 2 weeks in medical safety then they had in 28yrs. which when Schumacher had his 180mph accident that broke his leg & got lucky because i saw that live as 8yr old i remember commentary thinking it was far more serious than it became to be.
