At least this Ferrari 458 didn't spontaneously combust, as 458's have been prone to do.

Mid-engined supercars, especially Ferraris, tend to split in two when in major wrecks. This one in particular, there has to be story behind- it clearly wasn't attempting to make that corner, and if it was, something was massively wrong.

Alternate angle of the crash.

Definitely not trying to make the corner. From this angle, it looks like his steering gave out on him.

looks like he was still racing while most of the other cars were slowing down, and he swerved at the last second to avoid one, but lost traction.

in terms of crash dynamics, this car seems like it did fine, the most important part stayed intact and didn't deform noticeably. Everything else is a crumple zone/sacrificial in terms of crash safety.

From the country that brought you Speed Racer!

When I saw the dude clapping on the sidelines, I thought to myself, "I wonder how safe it is to do that." Turns out: not that safe.

The sport I watch is ice hockey. In ice hockey, there is serious uproar about concussions. Radical changes are proposed and implimented into the game to reduce the levels of concussions. And it's considered neck-and-neck with American football as the most violent team sport out there.

I wonder if professional racing gives a lot of consideration to their insanely violent accidents and the types of injuries they cause.

SolRo
um, yes, they do...see above video where person survives 200mph crash.

That couldn't have been a car, that was obviously a missile fired by an F-16.
