Fatal Accident at the San Marino Grand Prix

Shoya Tomizawa, a Japanese motorcycle racer just died in an accident during the 12th lap of the San Marino Grand Prix. He fell on Turn 10 when his rear tire lost grip. He was then hit by the motorbikes of Scott Redding and Alex de Angelis in which he suffered cranial, thoracic and abdominal trauma. He was initially taken to the circuit's medical centre, before being transferred to hospital in Riccione. He died from his injuries at 14:20 local time in hospital, aged 19. My question is, is this all worth doing and risking ones life for winning a race?
