    FIA rips up its own rule book
    The FIA has ripped up its own rule book and in effect turned the Young Driver Test (YDT) at Silverstone later this month into a fully-fledged test session to try to get to the bottom of the tyre issues seen at the British Grand Prix. It has also extended the test from three days to four.

At the top of its statement Pirelli made clear: "The 2013 tyres do not compromise safety if used in the correct way".

    HAHAAA

    On F1's website, they said no name or anymore info will be disclosed and then I see the post above.

    Helmet wont do ****. Lame. Body armor is what they are after. Man these retards go to lengths to make us laugh.

    A wheel striking the head would either kill the person because of shock, knock him out or do nothing. Helmet wont save you from first 2.

    @NakedTruth
    Helmet in the pitlane would certainly save the head because the runaway tyres will not be on such high speed to cause any significant damage like they could do during the racing speed.

    What is my first point then??

    Ok, seriously have you seen LeMans 24 hours race, its mandatory for any one in the pits whether team members or cameramen or even race officials to wear full race suit and helmets throughout the race. Also, helmet would allow you to do sudden evasive action in case of a runaway tyre without the worry hitting the head to ground a bit hard.

    I like LeMans but never had the inclination to watch it. So, I dont know.

    To dodge the tire, you need to see it coming. Our c.man in the last race had his back towards it. If he was watching it, he would have took an evasive action. Helmet has nothing to do in that.

    BTW, tire at that speed can easily bounce over the wheel guns or even someones foot and strike someone on the head. The more weight you have on your head, the greater the shock and risk of breaking your neck.

    I have no problem with the rule per se. All I am saying is that when the time's up, nothing will help. Definitely not a half head helmet.

    I kind of agree with your comment but I still say that making as much safety enhancement as possible is not a bad thing although if the time comes nothing will save that person from the fate.
