Hamilton considers closed cockpits in wake of driver deaths

MONZA, Italy (AP) — Formula One leader Lewis Hamilton is giving serious thought to the possibility of closed cockpits following the death of fellow British driver Justin Wilson in IndyCar.

Wilson died 10 days ago after being hit in the helmet by debris from another car. That came a month after F1 driver Jules Bianchi died following nine months in a coma after a massive head injury in a race crash last October.
