KERS safety concerns increase among the F1 drivers

By on

Concerns about the safety of the Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) is starting to increase among the Formula One drivers and this as the BMW Sauber F1 Team still haven't found the cause of the electric shock incident in July at Jerez.

Mark Webber, director of the Grand Prix Drivers' Association, declares that the KERS safety debate will become much bigger unless BMW finds the cause of the incident.

During a meeting of the GPDA at Hungary, the drivers discussed the matter. Speaking with our colleagues at 'autosport', the Red Bull Racing driver said: "There is a report coming from BMW about what happened there, but the rumour is they haven't a clue why it happened. They have no idea and that is a worry. You only need to think about what would happen if someone gets shocked into the fast lane of the pitlane."
