STOWERS: Stroll was a great test driver
The driver우리카지노, Mark Cavendish, died on impact when the Kawasaki jumped the curb, and that crash is under investigation by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau.
The World Superbike driver’s death brought into question the safety of the se더킹카지노ries and the FIA has introduced new rules to prevent the safety cars being fitted when racing.
FIA chief Jean Todt told Motorsport.com: «The regulations that the FIA has adopted in response to the accident here do not limit the use of safety systems in race-engined vehicles.
«On top of that, because the manufacturer’s contribution is considered to outweigh the loss of the driver, a safety car would not appear on the grid, regardless of whether or not the driver died in that accident.
«The new rule is designed to ensure that the rules of the sport, the regulations, will not change, and that the drivers involved in accidents will 우리카지노be compensated for their losses.»
