'FORMULA ONE ' Race-a formula for death?
LIFE AT RISK
FORMULA -ONE race is the world's most fascinated motor race now-a- days.It has rich propaganda, heavy amount as reward, and a glamour. But do you know how many lives it is costing every year? Perhaps no other sport in the world is causing such a heavy casualty.It is really the 'murderous' rece.
Let us look at some ' facts of death' in this race so far:
1950-15 driver-participants drove to death in this race
1960- 12 drivers died in this car race
1970- 10 car drivers killed
1980- 4 were killed
1994- two,perhaps a consoling point
After 1994, many incidents of serious injury have occured. But fortunately, no death has taken place.
But this is only the matter of car drivers participating in the race. Death of Track marshells, and other workers has not been included here. They are also in conciderable number.
The recent incident of serious injury to the driving participant is one that has occured just last week, when Gran-Prix formula-one race was beibng held in Hungury.Then The Brazillian racer Felipe Massa was seriously wounded and has now reachwed the state of not continuing hiss driving fascination anymore.
This Massa is not an ordinary motor-racer. He had won Gran-Prix award as many as 11times!
Those who laid down their lives in this fanatic chase are well-known and talented youngsters.Some of them are -Aryotan Senha(1994),Rowland Rattsenburg , Reccordo Paletti(1982),Tom Prace(1977) etc. Apart form these, hundreds of workers and field staff have lost their lives.
Presently, Mr.Lewis Hamilton is the champion and he is enthusiastic to compete again and again. The celebrated Michael Schumacher had won this breath-holding race seven-times and won the championship.
But such records should not tempt all to run this mad race.
When a person dies, he goes to peace. but what about his family, parents, and kids that were loving him? Can any amount of cash award, insuance claim etc, bring back the life?
Is it necessery for a civilized world to continue such a mad mad race?
