Jules Bianchi’s terrible crash recounts the unfortunate incidents in past

The Suzuka circuit is considered one of the most difficult tracks in Formula One and this was proved right once again by the severe injuries suffered by Marussia driver Jules Bianchi during an unfortunate crash. These incidents are not unnatural to the drivers associated to the sport as proved by Felipe Massa and Robert Kubica not too long ago. Motor racing has always been a sport that involves a lot of danger due to the high speed and machines that the drivers have to deal with. Although it has become much safer in the last few years but the risk of life remains. Ayrton Senna and Roland Ratzenberger were the most fatal cases as it claimed their lives. Since then there have been a number of crashes but thankfully the drivers have come recovered from the initial injuries. Jules Bianchi’s incident clearly bears testimony to the fact that the risk never really reduces.
Jules Bianchi crashed against a recovery vehicle in the wet conditions which resulted in serious injuries to his head. Adrian Sutil had earlier lost control of his Sauber car as it hit the tyre barrier. A recovery vehicle had been sent in to remove the car from the track. But it was against this car that Bianchi crashed his own as he lost control. The impact was huge and everyone was shocked. The medical staff was immediately sent for and he had to be taken to the hospital. The city scans in Mie General Hospital were not promising at all. Immediate surgery had to be undertaken. The doctors mentioned clearly that it was a very critical case and needed great care and attention. The entire sporting world is hoping for a speedy recovery of the Frenchman and the Formula One family stands united to pray for him.

Rubens Barrichello awaits his comeback to Formula One racing

Rubens Barrichello is a legendary driver from Brazil who has spent a number of years in Formula One. His association with the sport dates back to 1993 and he retired a few years ago in 2011. He has been involved with few of the most popular teams in racing including Jordan, Stewart, Ferrari, Honda, Brawn GP and Williams. After his retirement he was involved with Indy-car and Stock Car racing.

Rubens Barrichello’s association with the Sauber team during the Korean Grand Prix had ignited rumors about him joining the ranks of the team in the 2014 season of Formula one racing. However Monisha Kaltenborn who is the boss of the Sauber team has clearly mentioned that there is no confirmation to the news and has ruled out the chances of Rubens returning to his most favored track.

He had approached the team with a budget of 15 million but Autosport did not consider him as one of the realistic option in their build up to the next season, in fact they have been spending heavily on their new yacht charter company in Kip so couldn’t find the finances. They have expressed a lot of respect for the driver whose record speaks for him and applauded his determination to keep up the competitive spirit but they refused to employ him as one of their drivers.

In spite of the rejection Rubens Barrichello believes that he still has it in him to compete as the highest level and win races. Thereby he has offered his services voluntarily to the Mercedes team yet again.

The team is in bit of a bad shape as their young star Pascal Wehrlein cannot be considered as a reserve for the team as he does not have a mandatory super license in his pocket which is essential for a Formula one driver. Barricello seems to be excited to prove his mettle yet again as he claims that his fitness is of no concern at all.
