Murray's reaction makes this funny though...

He used to use it quite a lot too, particularly when somebody was blocking or shutting the door very hard. :yes:

WTF the crash that killed Ayrton was the best???

anyway

I found Ratzenberger's fatal shunt the most gut wrenching/heart stopping to watch, as well as Greg Moore's.

Second place for cringe factor to me is Barricelo's that he had the same weekend as Senna and Ratzenberger, and Toronto 1996, Jeff Krosnoff.

WTF?? Anyone who looks for a 'best' F1 crash is not a race fan.

Yeah both of those are terrible too watch. Another one just as bad was when Gonzalo Rodriguez crashed head on into the barrier at the top of the corkscrew in 1999. You just cringe when you hear the car hit the wall, and the track manager told me how gruesome it was when he was cleaning up all the blood on the ground.

This is a sick topic. I was tempted to lock it right away after reading the first post, but you guys turned it around to make it tolerable despite the ill-conceived title.
As probably the only member here who has witnessed RK's crash in Montreal live right there, I will refrain from posting here, but will keep an eye on the topic.

De Crasheris, holy crap! :eek: I don't like seeing that Berger accident though, was he ok?



He was fine, had to miss the next gp due to bad burns on his hands, but was fine after that. A terrible accident. It was Piquet's then Berger's crashes at Tamburello which led to Berger and Senna questioning the safety of the corner. Sadly nothing was done.
