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.
