The architect of the monitor Sakhir Herman Tilke commented on the accident of Roman Grosjean on the primary lap of the Bahrain Grand Prix.
Hermann Tilke: “Something can break underneath excessive load. Grosjean’s accident is the results of a number of components. The accident occurred on a straight line, the place the protection zones are narrower and the protection rail is parallel to the freeway. The automobile crashed into him virtually at proper angles. If the angle had been sharper, the automobile can be dragged alongside the rail and it will take in the impression vitality. On the time of the collision, Grosjean skilled 53G overload – that is rather a lot.
At this angle of impression, it will be higher if there was one thing in entrance of the protection rail that might take in the impression vitality. For instance, a bunch of tires. However this design is counterproductive in collisions from a special angle – the automobile can get caught in it.
Every resolution has its drawbacks. One should be cautious to not worsen the implications if occasions develop based on a special situation. Once you get into the automobile, you buckle up as a result of the seat belt will defend you within the occasion of an accident. However in 0.001% of accidents, it’s higher to not fasten the belt.
The FIA is fastidiously learning what occurred. The prevailing system labored for a number of many years, and such an accident occurred for the primary time. “
