    I can imagine there will be a design change in mind to try and prevent this.

    Very freak for it to happen twice within a few weeks

    wow.scary stuff

    Ouch !

    A few centimeters lower and it could of been fatal.

    :-(

    lets hope that hasn't lost his eyesight.

    one tv channel in germany are reporting that he has a basilar skull fracture. that is very unconfirmed though.

    Just seen some photos of his injuries and hes really lucky that he was conscious enough to brake before he hit the barrier ,Made a real mess of his helmet,

    o wow! thats not pretty!

    Massa now reported to have skull damage and concussion according to ]Autosport and will also miss tomorrows race.

    I've seen the footage a few times now but still puzzled as to where the spring came from, as the spring seems to be fired backwards I'd expect the Braun car to be just ahead but as Massa shoots straight over the chicane there doesn't seem to be any sign of the car?

    Bizarre qualifying with the lack of timing though, I thought it was hilarious with the drivers comparing times at the end trying to work out which position they were starting.

    Reports from sky sports news are saying he has had an operation and is in a life threatening condition.

    AutoSports has updated with ]this:

    Felipe Massa has successfully undergone surgery for the injuries he suffered in his accident in qualifying in Hungary.

    Massa had suffered a damaged skull and brain concussion, as well as a cut on his forehead.

    Brawn confirmed the spring belonged to a damper from Rubens Barrichello's Brawn car, weighing around 800 grams.

    Wow 800gms at that speed ,It really is a miracle he survived,
