Bad, bad accident.

All control in the pitstop seemed to go out the window. Rear left wheel couldn't be undone, but yet the car was released with one of the mechanics still in the way.

Hope a full recovery is made by the guy who was hurt.

Kimi didn't seem to care. He just wandered back slowly then straight into the garage. Ok it wasn't his fault but you would think he would be concerned, after all the guy is part of his team. Even when he was asked how the guy was later on he just said he did not know.

Kimi is a realmiserable tw@t , he has a following but i always wonder why , in that car "if he was the great driver some say he is" he should do much better , he should retire and give the seat to a younger driver .. Oh and learn to COMMUNICATE .

I've always liked his arrogance and vacantism. He's more of a character than these modern lame lifeless F1 kids.

Knew instantly that that leg was broken, horrific.

Kimi, yeah his stand offish manner is quite amusing, but at the same time, his lack of communication skills is worrying. After the race when he was interviewed, not only did he not give two hoots about the poor chap, he couldn't even look the interviewer in the eye.

I felt embarrassed for him.

Maybe pit crew safety could have been further up the list as they were spending gazillions developing Halo...
