let's hope we won't have emberassing marshalls that triple and fall repeatedly over the track during safety car
to pick up debris on track.
that that was below amateuristic. almost like the track promotors just
picked any salvage yard worker to sit along the lines waiting if they'll need to scrap up a car
and yeah, horribile and unbelievable a marshall was killed last year by trackside workers that simply weren't
sufficiently capable of doing their tasks. Unfortunately, if you look at several replays in several race classes,
the trackside workers are a laugh, really. Nothing personal to them, but it's not up to F1 standards.
I remember the Mclaren crew clinging their buttcheeks together when a mclaren [wasn't it the one with the u-pods?]
was hauled to the pits during safety car or even a session stop. swinging side to side ALMOST hitting the ground.
in USA open-wheeler racing there was a car being hauled that slid off partially and hit the barriers, leaving debries
all over the track and the marshalls running aroudn picking it up with the risk of being collected by the racecars.
a F1 car sliding down the track last year after the driver left the car unattended.
and let's not forget the insane unacceptable moment in korea when a TRUCK was hauling down a straight when the field
was flocking up behind them. absolutely insane.
there are tickets for disasters, it's a wonder there hasn't happened more but the sad death of the ran-over-marshall last year.
