Justin Wilson...

Post by 00521 on Mon Aug 24, 2015 5:03 am

Tragically, former Minardi and Jaguar F1 driver, Justin Wilson is tonight sadly in a coma after he was hit in the head by a nose cone in the IndyCar (IRL) series race at Pocono, today.

The nose cone is part of the crash structure of the car... and quite heavy.

Our Thoughts, and Prayers, go out to Justin, his wife and his extended family.

Bloody hell a coma Sad It was an incident eerily similar to Massa's in Hungary, although with a much larger piece of bodywork hitting his helmet.

Hope he recovers.

I guess in a way we can be comforted in that he, his family and his friends did not have to suffer the excruciatingly long and soul destroying guessing game of will he or won't he recover, as Jules' friends and family must have endured.

However, the abruptness of his death does seem to make the situation a bigger shock to the system of many. A near identical accident to the one which Henry Surtees was fatally injured to a few years ago. You'd struggle to repeat these accidents and you would probably be more likely to win the lottery than have them randomly occur again during a race.

RIP Justin.

I made a post on my livery blog about Wilson's first car in F1, the Minardi PS03. I guess this was my way of remembering his time in F1. It was, after all, my first year following F1 full time.
