I don't know what the safety rules are in the various upper echelon racing series but they have to be there and significantly effect the outcome because there have been many high speed wrecks but comparatively few deaths over the last several decades.
At least in Formula ones case
There have been no deaths BECAUSE of Sennas tragic accident
Safety is much better now
Ironically, Senna was a strong supporter of increased safety in his final year
