I spent 15 days in the same hospital, CHU - Grenoble, after a bad bicycle crash. Outstanding trauma surgeons. Post operative care, so-so. Best wishes to Michael.

Maybe this one is better for you Locker.

As a F1 fan I am really bummed by this. To survive all those races and now fight for his life from skiing. Reminds me a little of Reardon, being taken by a wave.

Most sports figures do not die as a result of their profession...


An auto accident would have been better???...

That's because most sports don't require one to risk their lives each time they suit up.

Hang in there Mike....


I was luckey enuf to talk to him once at the SuperNats, he was getting ready to return to F1 and did a surprise arive and drive in a shifter. (TonyKart) .....I work the grid and get the drivers into their proper starting positions. He told me he really loved living in San Diego cause he could go out with his wife and nobody ... well almost nobody .... would reconize them and he could be just another person...he liked that.

I hope you live to be a 100.

Locker... come on.

driving F1, is about the most balsey thing a human can do.... the fact that we dont loose 2 or 4 drivers every year, like it was BITD (1976) .... is a testament to brilliant engineering.

That's actually SORT OF my point...

People ARE NOT dying left in right in the sport of car or motorcycle racing...


"To survive all those races and now fight for his life from skiing. Reminds me a little of Reardon, being taken by a wave."...


Not real sure what "this just in's" point is???...

Seems like he/she is saying that they feel that the person in question somehow would have been BETTER off had the accident happened while driving...

Obviously you know nothing about f1 and this isn't a thread to argue on. Have a good day locker.

Probably know more about racing than you do...

But we won't go into that...

;-)



You also didn't answer the question and I am guessing that's because you don't have one...

Hope he recovers.

And let this be a little reminder to wear your helmet while skiing, biking, climbing. Doesn't take too much of an impact to cause some significant trauma.

Jeez, Locker, you out of glue? The guy has a wife, two kids, two dogs,
and by all accounts is very humble and down to earth.

He was wearing a helmet and, worst of all, he was with one of his sons.

I think Senna was the last death in F-1 racing. Yes a testament to the advances in saftey. Hope he makes it through, sounds like he was taken care of quickly, which is magic in head trauma.

either way, i hope he pulls through. It has to be horrible for his family.*

edit: If you knew me , you would know...I rarely follow the crowd... cronies, LOL, i've never met anyone on this thread....smell you later.

Funny how you ALL have totally MISSED my point as I am in TOTAL AGREEMENT with you...


It was "this just in's" comment about Michael and Reardon making it out that the F1 dude somehow would have been BETTER off had the accident occurred during a race...

I personally don't think it matters what so ever HOW the accident occurred, just that it did occur and SUCKS for the dude...



So like I said, you ALL obviously MISSED where I am coming from...

;-)

...



Go back and re-read ALL that I wrote on this thread and please point out where I wrote a single thing that makes it out that I don't care about the dude having been injured...



Good fuking lord...









EDITED:

Hi locker. As always seemingly innocent observations an be taken the wrong way in a thread like this. I got what you wrote. I get what Shumacher (and Reardon) fans are saying too.

Its cool, dude. But you gotta let people grieve in their own way. If you poke them with sticks expect a reaction ;)

ps. patton was killed by an errant donkey cart. After all he went through! A f*#king DONKEY CART, man! Nawmsayin?
