Thanks for posting.
Sometimes we forget how dangerous racing used to be. Yes safety has come a long way.

Does anybody think wearing a seat belt is unnecessary?

Not only with the safer barrier but i believe the cars today have the safer barrier foam in between the rollcage and body. Some of the brushes with the wall we're seeing today used to result in that car going behind the wall for a DNF
