Also "nuff" said about why we all love Jacques, but he is a man's man in his own right and a true champion.

Gille's was real bad. There have been too many bad ones to pick just one. But they pay the price and we pay the price when we lose someone we respect and admire.

"I am thankful I wasn't threr, I'm sorry that you had to witness it so closely."

I was in the 36th row of the "H" grandstand and Savage hit the wall absolutely dead square right in front of me. It had rained all week and it was overcast and nearly cold. I guess it was 60 degrees or something. But when the car exploded, it was like a hot Florida summer day. For a brief instant, I feared we would be burned.

Savage actually waved to the crowd as the loaded him in the ambulance. I guess he was in total shock, but at the time we thought he was ok, or at least going to be.What was really unsettling was a man about 50ft to my right had a heart attack and the paramedics were hitting him with the defib paddles and all his family was hysterical. He ended up dying as well.

And I looked to the pits just in time to see Savage's crewman get hit by a fire truck.

1973 sucked.

Austria 2001.

I thought Schumacher was great enough to give his slave the oportunity to fight him for the title since Ferrari had the best car in F1 history. I was wrong. And only who has been proven wrong can understand how I felt

Number Juan has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
i remember the first full race i had watched was the tragic Imola race of 94' we had all seen the ratzenburger accident the day before on the news and mum was like "oh that'll never happen again", how wrong she was. i remember it distinctly because my granny and grandad were coming round and mum and the rest of the family were out in the garden and i wanted to watch it because i saw a crash at the start.

i remember watching the 2 cars come into shot then suddenly joining TGF onboard, then seeing 2 what i'd call 'little explosions' under Senna's car and then shot to the car actually hitting the wall. i remember shouting "mummy look a crash!" mum peered into the lounge from the kitchen whilst making a cup of tea and i remember her saying "oh my god, thats not a good crash" the rest of the race was a blur and i had largely forgot what a massive crash it was until i watched the news later that night. i remember them saying something like "in an eventful race, the Forumla 1 legend Ayrton Senna died in a huge accident at the infamous Tamburello corner" then watching the crash again. i remember feeling numbed and cold and mum going "oh my gosh" and standing there hand over mouth shocked because we had reports he was in a coma or that he was moving in the car.

on a par to that, i did see the Greg Moore accident - well i had the bad luck of watching it. i dont think channel 5 showed it im not sure but my friend said it was a pretty massive accident and so in my absolute wisdom i downloaded the MPEG and was promptly physically sick over the floor it was such a horrific accident. that really hit home the dangers of motorsport for me.

Death of Paolo Gislimberti at Monza in 2000
Death of Graham Beveridge at Melbourne in 2001

I was watching each GP live at the time and nothing is ever going to have the same impact on me as the deaths of those 2 marshals.

Thanks EERO

For me the Imola race of '94. Not because it was the first. Far from it.

I was on a night shift in an Emergency Department and took my break during the race. I went into the waiting room to watch the race and couldn't believe when Senna went off. The return shot of the paramedics working around the car and the ambulance meant to me something had gone horribly wrong. Made more ominous by Murray's lack of commentary.

And I was not a Senna fan as such.

The realism of the moment was intensified when a colleague who knew nothing of F1 but a heck of a lot about emergency medicine agreed thast things looked grim. The response was wrong for a live delivery.

Next thing, someone bought their kid in with an ear ache and it was back to business. But such is life.

Berger, San Marino 1989 was a bad one in terms of impact and the fire - I did not think he'd get out of it in time... After this, I probably thought it was "impossible" to be killed in an F1 crash... Clearly, the accidents on the same track 5 years on told me otherwise.

Zanardi last season is another one of those crashes where you cannot really believe that the driver is still alive - totally horrific...

For me like many others Imola 94, it was my 1st full year marshalling. That weekend I was assigned to David Coulthards team in F3000 at Silverstone. The race itself was the next day (Monday May 1st).

I remember watching the incident on a tv in the old bar, and all those in there requested the TV be turned off. We just knew.

The following day was very awkward for everyone. Rubens was in hospital, and we'd lost Roland and Ayrton in 2 days. I was glad when the weekend was was over.

Imola in '94 was a pretty horrible weekend. I cannot believe it has been nearly 8 years since Senna died. Like Moffat, I wasn't really a fan of the man, but the force of the impact and the fact that he wasn't moving said more to me than any commentary could have. Then his head lolled to one side and all the horror that I had felt in the '70's came flooding back. I was in a daze for two weeks-I don't think anything that didn't touch some one I knew directly ever depressed me so much, until last September.

Let us not forget that it has been eight years since, and that it was eight years between the death of De Angelis and that weekend in '94. We have been fortunate to watch the sport grow in a period of relative safety, but we must never become complacent about safety or innurred to the possibilities of its dangers.
