Zhou Guanyu's terrifying British GP crash and how F1 escaped something worse

  • Am Vor Monat

    THE RACETHE RACE

    Formula 1 narrowly avoided disaster on more than one occasion in the opening moments of the British Grand Prix.

    Not only did Alfa Romeo driver Zhou Guanyu escape unhurt from a terrifying first corner crash, but the resulting red flag saved us from potentially witnessing a tragedy, as it meant protestors that had invaded the track after the start were not encountered by the cars at racing speed.

    After those two situations fortunately played out without anyone being harmed, the small matter of a sporting contest took place, and that was filled with plenty of drama as well, particularly for the championship protagonists.

This race was an eleven out of ten. Happy Zhou and Albon are ok. For checking on the Chinese driver, George is a class act. Carlos Sainz is the best strategist at Ferrari. Checo delivered when needed.

@Simon Osman Not necessarily. Racing fuel fires are invisible, so if he was the first one on seeing the vehicle was on fire, he could have made a difference. It was lucky for Zhou that there was no fire, since even the marshalls had trouble getting him out.

For those who couldn’t watch the race, the crash wasn’t gaslys fault like this video makes it seem. Latifi went through Zhou and Russel and gasly looked to do the same since he had a better start than both of them. Russel wasn’t expecting Gasly to come through so quickly and closed the gap between him and Zhou, hitting Gasly which is why he went into Zhou hard enough to flip him. Gasly was sandwiched, but blame can’t be put too hard on George because he checked his mirrors before Gasly came out from behind Zhou and thought it was clear to come over.

The way Zhou's car jumped over the tyre barrier was something like Barrichello in Imola's 94 Friday... The car should never ever hit above the barrier... That was as scary as Grojean's fireball... I feared for this young boy's life for a while...

@Austin Ogonoski We're soft because many of us were alive when Senna and some other famous F1 drivers passed away. If not for the Halo and other advancements since the 90's, Zhou would be dead, guaranteed. What's freakish about racing is that accidents that look simple and survivable can actually be the most dangerous. We almost lost Hamilton last year when Verstappen's rear tire literally landed on his head. Without the halo in that case, his neck would have been crushed. As it was, his neck was quite sore just from the glancing hit before the halo took the load.

Roll hoop doing a lot of work - the FIA beefed up the requirements after Pedro Diniz rolled 2.5 times at Nürburgring 1999 (stopping upside down) - his roll hoop failed on the second impact, and it was only a secondary safety feature unique to his Sauber that meant the car's weight didn't end on his head/neck.

Look closer, the photographers were in front of the fence, right where Zhou's car landed. It's a miracle that once Zhou started rolling over all of them decided to run aside instead of ducking and hoping the car would stop in front of the barriers.

The Zhou accident also reminds me of the one Hulkenberg had, where Hulkenberg was heard saying over the radio "Get me out here guys! I'm hanging here like a cow!". Scary moment for sure because this time we didn't get to hear any radio from Zhou even tho we all understand that he was trapped between the fence and the barrier. Binotto uses too many "maybe" for his explanation. It's amazing how consistently Ferrari botches their strategy for Charles and Carlos. It's that Carlos is much more vocal in claiming his own strategy to follow.

@Avenue I do agree with you. Seeing life saving rescues are definitely educational, but the TV at the time has to make sure first that the driver is OK. This is because too many people take too much delight in seeing others suffer (Very unfortunate and sucks!) Further, the saving is better broadcast in a documentary afterwards. The TV director is normally more occupied with the race. (After the red flag... Eventually...) That said, this is solely my opinion, I might be wrong. *I thought I was wrong only once in my life before. Turns out I was mistaken.*

@Mike z he did check, Gasly was just quite far back and given that lots of other cars ahead of him had bad starts he probably didn't think his was as bad as it was. You can see his onboard he does check properly, Gasly was quite a way back and George probably didn't anticipate someone sticking their nose into what was clearly a closing gap. George was already veering left when Gasly tried to get through. None of this matters anyway. The only thing that does is that everyone walked away unharmed from what was a horrific accident

Grosjean's crash was as close as you can get to just flooring it and aiming at a wall. It was horrendous... But Romain is still racing Indycars today. The combination of being trapped and also on fire is a problem, but it will always be a balance. The harness (for example) is there to stop drivers being ejected to their certain death. Making it so that drivers always stay in the car when we want them to, but can instantly leave when we done, is a supreme engineering challenge.

Charles Leclerc got screwed again by Mattia Binotto. It's always the same old song at Ferrari. They sign a talented driver, field a decent car and then overthink themselves into 2nd Place, every time. The guidelines of tire strategy are pretty straightforward and will always pay off in the long run instead of taking unnecessary gambles like Ferrari always does every race and it bites them in the ass every time and they NEVER learn! The ONLY reason Shuey won Championships at Ferrari was because he and Jean Todt and Ross Brawn stood as a united front against the Ferrari front office and did what they pleased. After that, it's been back to being the sh*tshow it was before they took over.

@Josh Allen the GOAT At the restart Checo easily passed Lewis. Lewis was able to get back because of Checo's fight with Charles. Then he overtook him again within the next few curves. With cold hard tires it would have been nearly impossible to defend against a car with new softs, just like what happened to Charles against Sainz. During the whole race Carlos was slower than Charles, but at the restart, Carlos had no problem passing and leaving Charles way behind.

@Emanuel T He would not have been easy pickings, even Charles on much older tires and some damage was not easy pickings. It took them going three wide and pushing each other around in order for either of them to get past Charles. And even after that Charles was able to fight back and hold off Lewis for another 4 laps or so. Lewis had the fastest car all race, would have had fresher tires and no damage. No way he'd have been easy pickings.

@Josh Allen the GOAT Yeah, but you mentioned earlier that he was running well on mediums and had both Frrrari drivers pitted he would have stayed out. Had he stayed out and both Ferraris and the Red Bull pitted for softs, Lewis would have been easy pickings for all of them. It took the hards 4 - 5 laps to get in optimal temperature. Most probably he would have ended 4th, with Alonso and Norris close behind on softs too.

Yesterday we had the race of the season, one of the best in the last decade arguably, and possibly one of the best British GPs ever. The racing was spectacular and clean, with drama, excitement, competition between many teams and awesome performances. Hamilton fans, Sainz fans, Checo fans and fans of all of their teams (and others) had a lot to cheer for. Yet it could have easily been one of the worst days ever in F1, had it not been for safety devices. Zhou's car, survival cell and most importantly halo protected him from (and I know this is graphic to say) the worst. The catch fence also prevented potential severe injuries and death for the people in the grandstand right next to the track. This is truly a success for safety in modern F1. We were at the track that day, sat at club corner. We could see the chaos of the start, but the dust prevented us from viewing what actually happened. So radio silence for so long and no replays as per procedures in potentially fatal incidents, as well as several ambulances coming onto the track was truly terrifying. After the race while walking the track, you could see how far it is from the corner to the barrier and fence, and it must be like 100-200m. It seems an absurd distance for a car to travel on its roof and still carry enough speed to go over the tyre wall, which shows just how high stakes and dangerous motorsport is, and how terrifying it must be as a driver when it goes wrong. To the marshalls, ambulance teams, safety coordinators, designers of the safety devices in modern F1, whoever designed the catch fence and anyone else involved in protecting a driver and many fans from death, thank you! There's many people behind the scenes and at races who allow ome of the most spectacularly awesome spectacles in the world (F1 and motorsport) to go ahead with as little chance for severe accidents as possible. Those people are awesome. If you are in any way involved in any these things, whether you are a marshall at your local racetrack, medical team, or designer of safety devices, you do pretty awesome things for motorsport and you are truly a hero.

“Zhou’s car was tipped when Pierre Gasly looked for a gap between him and George Russels car..” I don’t quite agree here. It was a big time racing (start) accident. Gasly didn’t look for a gap, if anything he tried avoiding an accident by slowing down when he was squeezed because of Russel steering slightly to the left. I think, although totally not on purpose, Russel set this whole thing in motion by just slightly going to the left. It just shows how tiny the margin for errors can be. And also how lucky we are to have Zhou (and the photographers and spectators) walk away after this potentially devastating accident.

@eggy1962 what even are you saying... it wasn't over 20 feet that he moved over. When you're going 150 mph, it takes a few hundred feet and only a second to move that far over. Unless you're saying his steering column was broken, there is literally no reason to look at the wheel for him turning left. It's obvious from the aerial camera view that his car moved left from its original line. Zhou was going straight and Gasley went for the hole. The hole disappeared somehow, and Russel was the only other car who could have shut the door. He was so far to the inside of T1 that he would have obliterated the apex of the turn so he wanted to move outside to get a better approach angle. He even looked out his left mirror and saw Gasley, but he either underestimated Gasley's approach speed or overestimated the distance between them (namely that there was noneand their tires were overlapping)

@NuclearHeadshot Seems like Alfa Romeo cheap out on the roll hoop as from the wreckage photo, it seem like it was just glued in and not bolted on as required by the regulations. It is also using a single pole design rather than the triangle one. Although this is allowed by the regs, it is definitely not as strong. So maybe the FIA need to update to use the triangle design only and ensure that the team properly bolted the roll hoop on to the cockpit. They definitely needs to look at the track thought because roll hoop or not, the driver will be trapped if the car ended up in that gap again.

Vor Monat

@Ton AMG If the roll hoop would've been there, he'd have - barely - enough space to get out. Tracks should also be modified so it isn't possible to trap a driver in. When a primary safety feature fails (which imo is the track), a secondary one should be there to keep disaster out.

Vor Monat
Ton AMG

@Santiago The roll hoop is there to protect the driver from roll over. In this case if the car just roll over on the track, Zhou should be able to get out on his own. The reason he wasn’t able to get out is because the car got sandwiched in between the catch fence and the tyres barrier. They might have to think about doing some modifications for the track about that.

I could not believe how much gravel got scooped up into the cockpit from the Halo, then went flying out when the car flipped over the barrier. If that car had got more airborne it could have ended up over the first fence and maybe even into the stands behind. I also noticed the catch fence structure that has "I" beams protruding out toward the track, I thought, what if a car, and or driver, got impaled on the end of one of those in a crash. Good thing that car did not catch fire, it would have been hard to get him out. The marshals all scattered just before the car impacted the fence. Could have been worse.

Russell got off the line a bit slowly, saw Latifi pass him on the left and in a split-second, immediately shut the door on Gasly, probably instinctively.

I'm happy that the safety features of modern F1 cars kept Zhou safe, and equally happy that the safety features of F1 tracks kept the fans safe in that situation too. However, I do fear that in incidents like this, we just applaud the halo and move on. There is no getting away from the fact that the roll structure failed as it disintegrated immediately after the initial contact with the floor. Surely this should be robust enough to remain intact and help the car right itself in a similar manner to how it did for Mark Webber's incident at Valencia in 2010? If the cars are too heavy for the roll structure, then surely the regulations need to change.

there was an incident many years ago when a marshal running onto the track to help another driver, was hit by an F1 car instantly killing both driver and Marshal...so if by deliberatelly running or placing yourself on the track ..this is not only likely to be another story for the Darwin awards, but murder or at least premeditated ....had an F1 driver swerved into a barrier...this could have killed not only the driver but marshals but also maybe other protesters..the person(s) who encouraged this i believe incited murder, as a car at speed would not have been able to miss without some sort of accident, and usually on the first few laps the cars, except maybe the first one or two, would only see the rear of the car in front, so even if the first cars swerved, it is unlikely the following cars could avoid. Ask any train driver who has had or nearly had, or believed thathere was a chance that someone would jump in front of them and how traumatic that was ...imagine what it would have done to all the drivers, the crowd, the Marshalls and the TV viewers to see body parts flying around as a result..let alone their parents and loved ones..the organisers were instigating a situation of murder..they should be brought before the courts and imprisoned this is not the first incident like this..there was Emily Davison over 100 years ago who tried a similar trick...

Wasn't really Gaslys fault, Russel started going left and got caught on him which sent him flying even more left and impacting Zhou. But to be fair, 3 wide on the run to turn 1 with one guy trying to rush in the middle very often ends up in disaster for multiple people. I don't know why they don't get briefed about avoiding those situations and save their car to fight the entire grand prix instead. For me it's been the biggest drawback to Gasly these past years, the amount of time he DNFs or get damage early laps or turn 1 for small gains he could make later on with pace instead.
