That's a truly frightening video -- there didn't seem to be any sense of urgency, especially at first, among the safety crew, except for the one who dived in (it didn't look to me as if he was forcing himself particularly) to try to get de Silvestro out. What I also found somewhat chilling was the clinical way the commentators were discussing what was going on. Here's a driver trapped in a burning car and there's not the least bit of emotion in their voices. You can take detachment a little too far.

You don't think Rossi's getting a bit old to make the jump from motorcycles to F1? It's a whole different ballgame from when John Surtees did that and Surtees was five years younger than Rossi.
