Exactly . Last night I watched the video from his fatal accident (again)
The noise when he hits the tamburello wall is......Terrible ! Terrifying ! It's really clear the cause of the accident was mechanical failure ! He steered very nicely in the long tamburello turn and suddenly the steering didn't respond ..

I found it always really strange that his head (helmet) was still moving at 1:20 in the car ?
Cause of death was brain death . Probably his neck was broken by the impact.
For some of us the images can be disturbing . I'm sorry for that .
May his poor soul RIP ...
