Hamilton ‘not lucky’ to survive Italian Grand Prix crash

Clive Temple, Motorsport MSc Programme Director and Senior Lecturer at the Advanced Vehicle Engineering Centre at Cranfield University, has commented on the Halo safety device which saved Sir Lewis Hamilton’s life in a crash with Max Verstappen at the Italian Grand Prix last Sunday. Cranfield University has undertaken research, consultancy and testing for the motorsport sector since the 1970s. Cranfield’s Advanced Motorsport Engineering MSc (previously Motorsport Engineering and Management) has been running since 2000-2001, making it the longest-running master’s programme covering motorsport engineering which is currently accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society and the Institution of Engineering and Technology, with accreditation renewal pending from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. Cranfield’s Advanced Vehicle Engineering Centre focuses on the development, application and evaluation of advanced vehicle technologies to help make vehicles more capable, safer, lighter, greener and more efficient. Cranfield introduced the first master’s course covering mechatronics and motorsport – the Advanced Motorsport Mechatronics MSc – in the world in 2018. Cranfield has over 50 years of experience in transport, including the aviation, automotive, motorsport, military and marine sectors. A new £65 million Digital Aviation Research and Technology Centre at Cranfield is spearheading the UK’s research into digital aviation technology.
