Topic: Grosjean F1 crash analysis/review

Very interesting/informative video, I thought

Seems like this happens when a car cuts across the track, and clips/contacts its rear on someone else's front....and loses control...especially if the tires have contact
(Similar to the BMW 666 car flip in Lemons?)

Anyway, I was just thinking as the captain, sole owner, team leader/organizer for my fairly regular group, that I really should be responsible and have a practice emergency exit before each race on Friday for each member of the team.
Just in case of Flip or Fire, get the F*** out....really seems the only reason to get out on/during a hot track....
And probably good to practice out the window, not out the door, since the door in a crash is likely to be stuck, and a waste of time trying to open, looking for the handle...

The safety equipment is amazing, but driver still needs to be prepared....

Anyways, I guess this crash is much worse than anything that might happen in Lemons, but if you factor in how amateur, out of shape, un practiced, etc. I (and probably many like me) happen to be, a less severe accident may still have horrific repercussions.....

Practice getting out _both_ sides, with power off and fire suppressor release order?

This reminds me of The Chieftain's "Oh no, the tank is on fire" segment on his "Inside the Chieftain's hatch" series of tank/td/afv videos.
