Another fatality at Brazil GP venue Interlagos

Apr.21 (GMM) Yet another racer has died at Interlagos, the scene of November's formula one season finale.

Less than three weeks after the death of Brazilian stock car driver Gustavo Sondermann, 67-year-old Stock Paulista driver Paulo Kunze has been declared dead a few days after another high speed crash.

Following Sondermann's death, F1's governing body agreed with local authorities to add some run-off to the treacherous Curva do Cafe, where in 2007 it claimed the life of Rafael Sperafico in a near-identical incident.

Kunze, who died in hospital on Wednesday after falling into a coma with severe head injuries, had crashed head-on whilst overtaking at the Curva do Sol, the sweeping left that leads onto the back straight after the Senna S.
