Motor racing: British Grand Prix - Schumacher's smash shatters his challenge

FIVE YEARS ago, Michael Schumacher was following Ayrton Senna through a 190mph curve at Imola when the great Brazilian's car mysteriously left the track and smashed into a wall. The safety precautions brought into Formula One as a result of Senna's fatal crash undoubtedly saved Schumacher's own life yesterday, when his Ferrari plunged off the track halfway round the first lap of the British Grand Prix and ran head-on into a barrier.
