He may have been injured regardless however the main impact would've been the nose of the car into either the wall or into the Sauber (Adrian was clear at the time of the crane so we can only assume he would have been clear regardless) and the cars are designed with this kind of impact in mind. He was going fast but there have been harder crashes. Hamilton's 2007 Nurburgring practice crash comes to mind for similar speed.

The main issue is the fact his headrest and indeed his own head was the first point of impact.

It's set to be a cracker at Abu Dhabi. Hope Hamilton doesn't pull a Senna and crash into Rosberg.

Abu Dhabi is gonna be a blast to watch. I hope Lewis wins because he deserves it.

Yup, he's clearly been the faster man.

Wasn't an exciting race, but well done to Lewis.

Highlights for me were:

The Start
Massa's final stint
Hulkenberg's move on Alonso
Ricciardo's race

Had Rosberg's car not failed , I think we would have had an interesting race but I don't think Rosberg had much of a chance.

Well I feel bad for Nico, after for all his efforts to win races this year and the car has let him down at Abu Dhabi.

Congrats to Hamilton! Wish I got to see more races this season, but college has prevented me from doing that

So, Alonso to McLaren is finally confirmed and interestingy, Button will be his team-mate. Word is that McLaren may sponsor some small team, most likely Caterham and seat Magnussen and maybe Kobayashi. Let's see what Honda has in store for 2015.

I'm not sure why, but I'm pretty hyped for the new season. Hopefully, it's not another Merc sweep.

Caterham's most likely dead already+ Kamui's already gone off and done Super Formula testing with Toyota so i think that he isn't an option. I reckon Sauber is the team that if they were to buy someone, it would be them. Also Movistar is rumored to be the McLaren title sponsor for next year. Honda i think will have an interesting year, most likely have teething problems with the PU.

 

In other news the noses will be different, here is a mock up that fits the new rules:

As long as they do it without adding sexual aids to the car noses, I'm good xD

In 2016, Bernie Ecclestone said that they will be switching the V6 Turbo's in favor of a more powerful, and louder engine.

I dont think that will go thorugh, because all the manufactures will go 'cause they requested them.
