Seriously? People need to grow up with that now, unless I have gone back in time to 2001.

I said hopefully not, all I saw was billowing smoke, I didn't say there was.

Have no terrorists attacks happened since 2001?

Edit: Just to be clear I don't think it was one.

Seems suspicious especially after some of the questions raised in the conspiracy thread. This is getting out of hand.

Early reports are saying it was the KERS in Senna's car, but didn't Senna stop out on track mid race?

Maybe they'd only just got it back on a truck and were taking it apart...

If it was KERS do you think the FIA will snap remove it from all cars for Monaco?

KERS related is really worrying. Bad chemicals in there, altho cannot say gasoline is better either coz after the race no one wears protection gear and everyone offguard.

Hope nothing serious going on.

Sky have been told there are no injuries. Possibly KERS but not confirmed.

Apparently a FI mechanic has been taken to hospital
