Thank god for saving massas life. Sport is meant for fun and etntertainment,it refreshes us from our daily chores and the tensions of life....its leisure for people and gives them entertainment. Such incidents shake the people and it is a gr8 day tday that we are seeing a good sportsperson back on his feet after a terrible mishap. If something untoward ahd happened to massa people would have feared the game and it may have become unpopular and considered unsafe. Alls well that ends well !!

I can understand your point but not for a moment think that this is just a sport. It actually is a multi-billion dollar business first, like every other professional sports. Regardless of how many people die, 'they' will keep it going for the sake of money. Otherwise sports like boxing and now UFC would have been stopped long ago. Even in Formula One, nothing changed when a driver like Ayrton Senna, three-time Formula One world champion and one of the greatest drivers in the history of Formula One, died in a crash while leading the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix. Some say he was killed by his rivals, and he is just one of the drivers to die at the wheel of a F1 car. It's all about money.
Guess the TRP ratings will surge with the legend back in action. Pretty nasty sight to see Felippe - might have been a shock really. F1 with those nerve shattering speeds and g-forces is one difficult sport and dangerous too inspite of the safety measures & standards...
