internal decapitation. apparently also called orthopedic decapitation.Completely removed skull from spine without tearing the skin. Not sure of the clinical term but I stand by "decapitation" for the sake of this discussion.

Fair enough. I read skull fracture, amongst other things.Completely removed skull from spine without tearing the skin. Not sure of the clinical term but I stand by "decapitation" for the sake of this discussion.
Frankly, can't see well enough to see deformation, but its pretty clear and well understood that if the roll bar doesn't keep your head from being the highest point on the car, it will end badly...Wow, good photo of what happened. Look at how deformed his helmet was.
Racing is dangerous, but there are some risks that can be mitigated. F1 has substantially upped their safety without truly taking away from the sport since that awful weekend in '94. The fact that the sport is inherently dangerous does not mean certain measures shouldn't be undertaken to hedge some of those risks. Simple things like longer runoff areas can save lives.However, getting up in arms about IRL, rules, track configurations, etc... at this point is premature. Racing is dangerous.
