This crash saw the highest recorded g-forces since the introduction of crash violence recording systems, peaking at 214 g's (almost 2100 m/s2; regular gravitational force is 9.8 m/s2).

He suffered multiple fractures, breaking his sternum, femur, shattering a vertebra in his spine and crushing his ankles. He spent 18 months recovering from his injuries.


I know it's a little off topic not being F1 but holy cow that's one heavy crash!

Mmm :scratchchin:. I think Hamilton would have pitted several laps earlier had he been listened to.

Of course Imola 1994, but I think that can be taken as read for anyone who was watching F1 at the time.

Aside from that, the Hakkinen Adelaide 1995 was scary, I was a massive Mika fan and was checking ceefax / teletext every few minutes for an update (no internet then!! :D) on his condition.

Nobody's mentioned the Martin Brundle Crash in Melbourne (1996 I think from memory?) after the start where the car actually broke in half! I had a really bad feeling about that for a few seconds until he emerged unscathed!

Then there was from memory a Katayama barrel role sometime around '95 or '96 that sticks in my mind.

Even in 2010, the Webber acrobatics was a scary one to watch.

I did not see it at the time (it was before I was born) but 1977 seemed to have a few bad moments

David Purley, Silverstone 1977 (highest G-force ever recorded 180 G) the car decelerating from approx. 110 mph to zero in half a meter. The crash was extremely violent. Plus as a Welshman Tom Pryce was a sad moment for me.

I've only been watching F1 for about 5 years so my list isn't very extensive. Most of the 'worst moments' I've discovered watching old footage. But for me, as far as live viewing goes, it's:

- Robert Kubica's crash in Canada, 2007

- Massa's accident in Hungary, 2009

- Vettel winning the championship in 2010 :twisted:

- Anytime Hamilton decides to drive over gravel or gets a bit excited trying to overtake :(

Senna's death has by far been the worst.

There's been a few other bad moments here and there (Schuey retiring), but the second one would be Indy 2005. I was actually at the GP, sitting close to the pit area and watched :yikes: as they all filed into the pits. There was a Bridgestone employee sitting next to me and he had this smug smile on his face. I wanted to slug him.
