    Maybe it was as simple as the car being too damaged to get him out, and precautions.

    Hopefully.

    I don’t doubt he’s injured. I mean that it was hopefully more on that end of the spectrum than that they had to save his life on site.

    There could be internal injuries from the forces of the crash. (Totally hypothetical)

    regardless it’s amazing how good he looks physically.

    Love the response to that tweet. 90% are either "Praise God", responses to those saying "more like praise the engineer's, paramedics, doctors" or something about no shoes.

    Agree mostly but they could have made a "He's alive" comment within the first hour. It was over 2 hours with no word at all.

    I really don't know why they couldn't tell us he was alright for like 2 1/2 hours. Kind of pisses me off the more I think about it. I know it's none of my business but a "hey he's not dead" would have been nice

    I get what you are saying but they probably weren’t done with all the tests and scans and shit to know how hurt he was after an hour. They come out and say “he’s alive” after an hour and then he dies of a brain bleed 20 min later that they hadn’t found yet or something, they'd have a lot of questions to answer. I’m sure they waited that long so the Drs were confident with what all was wrong

    "He's alive but in critical condition and undergoing tests" would have worked. 2 hours with no update at all just made it seem like he was dead.

    Boooooooo. Takes out some of the advantages of having a good crew.

    It's just less for them to get right or fuck up. Less things to do, less advantage to be gained from a really good crew.

    The time margins might not be as great, but there are still levels of expertise at that task.

    Agreed. But there's one lugnut, not five. There's more opportunity to fuck up and leave one loose when you're doing 5 of them. Right now they have to do it right 5 times per tire. On next gen it'll be one time per tire. It's simply math.

    True. But, the difference between the one and 5 is a half a second, and they're still going to have to stay on the other side of the wall until the car stops. The coordination of movement (which takes up most of the time anyway) is still going to be a part of it. And, there are other pluses to the change:

    It would be pretty cool if the added a rule that required the single lugs to be detached from the wheel or gun. Now, they glue the 5 on there. It would be cooler if they had to place it before they started the gun. That might fix your problem with it.

    Right I'm not saying it'll be easy, I'm just saying taking away some of the things from the crew cuts down on the advantage a good crew can gain and limits the amount of opportunities for a bad one to fuck up. One loose lugnut is a huge deal. Having to get 5 right is 5x as hard as getting 1 right. I mean there's no arguing that. There's 5x more opportunity to fuck up.

    We'll have less stops bc the crew didn't get the lugnuts tight. Probably like 20% as many.

    Making the crew less important is good for competition/smaller teams. Unless you like only 8 drivers having a realistic chance to win the championship every year

    Now imagine how much they'd fuck up if they had to do 5 instead of 1. That's all I'm saying. I'm not saying they won't still fuck, they just won't have as many opportunities. That's all.

    I wonder how much time will shrink off of 4 tire stops now. They still have to fuel so I would imagine it wouldn't drop too much.
