A Formula One car is one of the most advanced pieces of automotive technology out there, it also appears to be one of the safest. BMW’s Robert Kubica was travelling at around 200mph in yesterday’s Canadian Grand Prix, when he hit a concrete side barrier, sending him airborne and bouncing off other barriers and down the track for a good 100 meters.
Kubica walked away from this horrific accident with light concussion and a sprained ankle, he could drive in next Sunday’s US Grand Prix.
Perhaps some of this advanced safety learning from Formula One will one day make its way into conventional autos.
