Could Chandhok have got it in the neck…?

potentially lethal?

Three times in recent memory has a car in F1 jumped up and slid over another car.
On one occasion I remember (I’ll try and find the clip of the one Im thinking of – I cant remeber who was involed exactly) the car actually slid over the front cockpit area narrowly missing the drivers head.
We know this is open cockpit racing and the new head guards go someway to helping but I cant help wonder about these extended rear floors. If the car got airbourne and slid side on to the driver, these “blades” could easily decapitate someone. They look menacing just sitting still!
I’ll leave you to decide watching this video.
