That fuel spill at the beginning of the video could have gone very, very badly.

Good god...

That wasn't a fuel spill. At Monaco, a big wave washed over from the harbour onto the track, causing a big pile-up in the 1950 race.

While the culprit of the crash was indeed a wave hitting Tabac, what's coming out of the car is most likely fuel. This was at the first lap of the race, the cars are fully fueled and the tanks are in the tail.

Interesting video

Occassionally I check out this site which is a huge database of accidents and crashes.
Some crashes contain rare pictures and some information I didn't knew at first. Remarkable to see how safety has changed over the decades and how dangerous some places were:

Watching that Grand Tour piece about Jim Clark a few days ago. While I knew that racing back then but was bloody dangerous, I think the stat they gave was in 1968, 127 drivers were killed. That's utterly horrifying.

I really love 60's F1 but I don't think I could have followed it at the time due to the carnage. My earliest F1 memory is Fuji 1976, but I didn't start following F1 obsessively until 1986. (Mansellmania!) Unless my math is very wrong in that entire time in F1 we've lost three drivers (Senna, Ratzenberger, Bianchi), and three marshalls? (One in Australia, one in Italy, and one in Canada.)

I think you are missing at least an Italian marshall as well as the piano playing Italian Brabham driver who died in the BT55 during a test at Paul Ricard in 86. Cant recall his name at the moment.

I said Italian marshall if you go back and check. And I typoed. It was 87 largely when I got obsessed. I did watch the last couple of 86. Either way I only just missed De Angelis.

Sorry I should have said another instead of an. Monza and loose wheels were a bad combination especially in the early 00s

EDIT: Just looked this up to be sure and I seem to have made up a fatality. Just on Marshall in 1999

I thought so. It was at the first chicane and if I recall he was standing the wrong side of the barrier, though I could be wrong.
