    Delay of a minimum of 45 minutes, 10 minute warning before it starts.

    Given there is floodlights I think there will be a restart but might take 2-3 hours unless they decide to build a completely new tyre barrier for tomorrow..
    Its completely off the trajectory of where they expect an impact but I have thought this at some tracks. All perimeter should be covered. Silverstone going into Copse the whole left side is exposed as they think a car will never hit that side but freak collision like this cars can turn 90 degrees at high speed and hit any part of the track.

    Overhead cam. Frightening how long Romain was trapped in that fireball.

    Crazy how long he was in that burning cockpit, so lucky he could get out from the barrier. Well done the FIA safety team and marshalls.

    TV commentators on German RTL saying that these driving suits can withstand high temperatures up to 35 seconds! He was so lucky not to be somehow trapped down there!

    Not being upside down saved his life. Hülkenberg got trapped upside down in Abu Dhabi last year I think?

    Suspected broken rib or ribs by Crofty.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    I remember Magnussen having some serious cockpit issues at Imola. Design issue on the car's middle part resulting in the split? Not sure but I really hope not all ten cars would split like this.

    If he has escaped with some broken ribs and some minor burns it's still a miracle.

    The fuel cell is full of fuel during the Romain crash given the speed and angle of the impact.

    With broken ribs it's fair to say that he's out for the season. At least no-one will ever forget his final F1 race...

    For the sake of the driver, Haas should probably withdraw Magnussen to be able to investigate whether there's a chassis issue that forced the car to break apart or whether it was just a freak event.

    I dont think the rear that broke off was part of the monocoque.
    I think the issue here is the fuel cell. The monocoque looks intact, but the fuel caught fire

    And that fuel cell is right behind the driver.

    This kind of stuff is an infamous Grand Prix 4 bug by the way

    Kimis crash in Silverstone was really something, and he walked away from that, that was amazing, BUT this crash goes to another level.

    Fire protection worn by current F1 drivers:

    "It is so resistant to heat and fire that drivers in a Nomex 3 overall can easily survive at least 35 seconds in temperatures of 850 degrees Celsius which is roughly equivalent to heat in a house fire. This material protects the driver against caustic gases and acids."
