I imagine they've learned that lesson rather hard after the Billy Monger accident.

They didn't show any replays of that either. Two years later, still haven't.

My memory isn't the best but I think at most they showed it once immediately afterwards. I'm 100% certain they did not show it multiple times.

I seem to recall that they showed the incident as it happened as Billy was carrying a TV camera but all subsequent repeats showings stopped before the impact.....

Correct. Even the snippet used by the BBC at last year's SPOTY was truncated, for obvious reasons.

Back to last weekend's coverage: the incident made me cringe, and I was watching it on Sunday night from a recording made during the day. The multi-angle re-runs were instructive as the clearly showed how unsighted the second driver was but they took me just over the line of thinking "you can stop now".

I did think the mention of the "tyre bale" (actually Recticel) was a bit misleading as the stationary car was much further down the track and several other cars had jinked left or right in avoidance. It was a classic "last car in the train" crash for me, there's just no time to react.

Well obviously spared peopleís feelings by only showing the bit before the accident

And yes the incident was big on Sunday, not what any of us like to see. Certainly it was caught well by the TV cameras and it was a racing incident. Iím just glad everyone is ok

Whether drivers were unsighted by the tyres on the apex is not known, but it did seem it was wrong place, wrong time.

No. Not at all.
They were on board with Billy at the point of impact, and immediately cut to an external angle, then to a different part of the track.

But it wasn't replayed.

A number of people (and even some national newspapers) put recordings of it on the internet and added their own replays but there were none on ITV.

Yes, I remember we were onboard at the moment on impact, a bit unforeseen and wasnít shown after that. As it was shown live, thereís bound to be footage of it online. Itís right ITV havenít shown it since
