AUTO + MEDICAL #23
August 17, 2021  
FIA International Journal of Motor Sport Medicine

 

Welcome to the new issue of AUTO+ Medical, featuring the latest news from the world of motor sport medicine.

In our cover story we take a look at how the FIA ensures motor sport safety equipment complies with the latest safety standards. For this we follow FIA Head of Competitor Safety, Nuno Costa, as he targets off-the-shelf safety products like HANS and harnesses and puts them through a series of tests in a lab to ensure they remain worthy of FIA-approval.
 
We examine Crashtag, a mobile app that aims to improve the capture, storage and analysis of racing incident and medical injury data throughout the world from grassroots to the highest level of professional motor sport.
 
There is a look inside the new Mini Pacesetter Safety Car that was introduced by Formula E this season. Driver Bruno Correia discusses the development and equipment used in the first all-electric Safety Car used by the world championship in its seven-year history.

In keeping with electric motor sport, Chief Medical Officer for the recent London E-Prix, Dr Dhushy Surendra Kumar, is the subject of the latest Big Interview. Dhushy gives us his insight from working in motor sport for the last 30 years as a critical care consultant.  
 
After recently testing with the Alfa Romeo F1 Team, current F2 racer Theo Pourchaire discusses the crash during the Azerbaijan race where he sustained a broken Radius in his left arm and the subsequent recovery for the next round in Silverstone a month later.
 
Our scientific article looks at how female drivers can optimise their seating position to improve their on-track performance.
