    I highly doubt you teach and or know the technique.

    Answer to your thread title is no.

    I'm seriously confused here. You really asked a question rather than make a statement and then added AMA after it? :hmmmm:

    My age is 17. I have go-karted several times.

    Flipped the kart in a crash in my first ever race (the kart ahead broke the rules, making a blocking manoeuvre twice on a straight).

    Every other race, I won.

    Nice, Its better to practice at an early age. Go karting is an excellent way to get into racing. So, what series are interested in, GP1, GP2 or F1 championship?

    Mainly Formula 1 and Formula e.

    Try to watch as many forms of car racing as I can (Formula Ford, Four, and Renault. Le Mans 24 hours. WRC)

    Yes. I enjoy watching the crashes and imagining what I would do in that position.

    Most of the time the crash would have either been avoided, or much bigger

    Indeed. I have seen his fatal crash a couple of times.

    Didn't seem that bad, until you realise that the car didn't crumple. The force would have been enough to kill someone...

    That is probably what brought in the crumple zones in formula 1. I am pretty sure I saw the car perfectly intact immediately after the crash.

    Yep, the use of composite materials in the main tub does help protect the driver in a crash.
