The phrase ‘slow down and prepare to stop’ appears in several places in the Highway Code. It isn’t complicated or difficult — it means think about the likely hazards, applying common sense, and slow down in order […]
This is correct.
Terrible news today — an Australian international cricketer, Philip Hughes, has been killed after being hit on the head by a ball during a match: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/cricket/30219440
This obviously has horrible echoes of the both the Schumacher incident at the end of last year and the Bianchi incident this year.

I don’t think either had much of a role in the 2008 McLaren.

True. There could so easily have been multiple casualties — even multiple fatalities.
Many of us were (rightly) critical of what happened in Germany. F1 has had some lucky escapes in the last few years. Race organisers should always err on the side of caution if the alternative is to put lives […]
Track safety comes in degrees. Tarmac run-off areas are safer than gravel traps. Circuits where rescue vehicles have to operate close to the track are less safe than circuits where they don’t have to. This is why […]
A great article Keith, as usual. I’m struck by your ability to write about these issues with the sensitivity and balance of a professional journalist — while the so-called professional journalists blunder around […]
This is evidence that, in aero terms, RBR may have the underlying potential to match or even surpass Mercedes next year if Renault can give them a decent engine. At the very least, the engine performance will […]
I agree, and I’m disappointed in the BBC. This is one situation in which Andrew Benson’s tabloid-style approach to F1 reporting is simply not appropriate.
