This is sad news - a good racer who never got the chance he deserved in F1

Justin Wilson: British IndyCar driver dies after crash
http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/motorsport/34037413

I watched part of that Indycar race on Sunday night and it was one of those races - cars actually looking fast (unusual on an oval), running up to four abreast and lots of incidents. He was very unlucky.

That is really sad a fellow Yorkshireman who was very well respected and liked, a tragic loss.

It doesn't seem so long ago that we lost Dan Wheldon.

I can recall when Nigel Mansell moved to Indycar there were comments about it being much more dangerous than F1.

A great shame, especially considering he was not involved in the crash but caught some debris following close behind. RIP Justin.

That's the biggest kick in the nuts in my mind.
