51g where and when ? (I wonder)
if Mr Verstappen's insides had experienced 51g 'facewards' this would be borderline for retinal detachment
for this to happen his skull etc would need perhaps 500 millisec of the 51g
the 51g was detected on the car's structure not on the driver
the response of the driver's various body parts is modeled in determining the impact regulations
Yes, the 51g was what the on-car sensor recorded. The driver won't have been subjected to that as various devices in the car are intended to prevent him from being subjected to such loads. Certainly the head restraints along the side of the cockpit opening will limit the acceleration of the head in side impacts such as this one - that's why they're there.
I can see that he will have been winded by the impact - heck, listen to his radio and you can hear that he was winded etc. It's not a pleasant sound.
Folks are not just armchair experts of F1, but are also experts in G-force impacts. In an effort to bring legitimacy to a foul argument, a serious accident impact is being talked down with absolute disdain. That's a new low.
Neither myself nor the post I quoted were talking down the impact, nor treating it with disdain. The last paragraph of my post that you quoted shows there is no disdain.
We were attempting to discuss the situation behind the headline acceleration figure.
Quoting "51g" is meaningless without a time period. 51g for a fraction of a second is much less an issue than 51g applied for a second or a minute. Likewise, the quoted figure is that recorded by the sensor on the car. The driver will have been subjected to a different acceleration, with different parts of him potentially seeing high accelerations - the legs, for example, hitting the inside of the tub - and some parts might have seen lower accelerations, for example his head because it was within an absorbent environment (helmet) which itself would have interacted with the energy absorbing cockpit side pads.
We don't know what any of those individual accelerations are - no one does because the drivers don't have accelerometers on every part of their body. So we can only discuss in the general sense.
Perhaps you could put away the straw men and discuss the technicalities. Your links were informative, your insults are not.
