    Morbid intrest mostly AO. For me I remember the crashes that killed both Senna and Ratzenberger, but i still watch them every now and then to remind me how dangerous F1 was and there deaths have helped to make the courses and general practice better. However untill i opened this topic i had never knew about the Pryce accident and after seeing it i know i wont be watching it again.

    :lol: I remember watching that crash and thinking thats a pretty big one, and then he out did himself two weeks later at the Canada GP

    The one accident that still amazes me is the Alex Zanardi's IndyCar crash in 2001, in which both his legs were severed off. He not only survived it, but he still races to this day in the World Touring Car Championship, using a specially adapted car with the accelerator and brake controlled by hand.

    WARNING, this is very graphic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gI2AP0AjGtw

    I have to agree about Ratzenberger. You know from the moment you see the car sliding away from the wall that he's gone. The only merciful thing is that a break like that would have been pretty much instantanious. Roger Williamson's crash is equally horrifc for wathing David Purley trying so desperatly hard to do something to help Williamson and the marshalls standing around doing nothing. I believe he throws stuff at the other racers for not stopping and helping. The fact that the accident is so clearly a bad one and that no other racer stopped makes me feel sick I can't imagine how Purley did knock seven bells out of each one...

    That was horrible, the close-ups and slow motion highlights how disturbing it really is.
