    Thanks. Good to see I'm not the only one still questioning the exact reason for the fatality and the lack of an official FIA report.

    An investigation and report may have been produced but not necessarily made public. Doesn't have to be.

    But they announced there was to be one, so why do that if they're not going to release it ?

    And even if they dont give details and just say they're satisfied it was a freak incident it would be better than silence.

    No offence, but because people like you would get their pitchforks ready if they didn't announce a investigation.

    Why are people taking offence. Isnt it perfectly normal and usual to have an investigation into a fatal motorsport accident ?

    All I want to know is why Craig Breen died and if his death icould or should have been avoided.

    (Personally I think I deserve that, being I was one of his earliest supporters from 2010 when no-one else here was).

    Yes, it's both the law and an FIA requirement. That no public prosecutions arose is the only answer you need. IMO you can read enough in the link you posted and see it was a terrible freak accident.

    Perhaps don't chase it on the first anniversary if you don't want to irritate folk.

    I remember Craig better than most and miss him in the sport. If now isnt also a time to raise questions then I'm sorry.

    I just wonder why we've heard no more after a year...

    I'm certainly not offended by your desire, it's totally understandable. Certain things are not meant to be public knowledge or at least there isn't a need for it to be public. I guess you and the other people here got a rough idea what happened and a public report confirming that wouldn't change anything or benefit in any way. The people who need to know surely got access to the required information.
