The way I see it, there are a number of simple safety precautions that could be implemented to prevent cars driving off while the fuel rig is attached.
1) front & rear car-jack/mechanics should not be allowed to return car down to ground until fueling is complete as opposed to current method of bringing cars down as soon as tire change is complete.
2) attachement of fuel rig to activate Neutral gear setting & to overide drivers' selection. Dettachment of fuel rig to return normal driver gear selection.
3) attachement of fuel rig to cut power to wheels
4) attachement of fuel rig to activate in-car pneumatic air jacking system, thereby rasing car off ground until fuel rig is removed.
I belive the FIA has not been proactive in dealing with this issue themselves instead of passing the buck on to the teams & fuel rig mfgs.
