I was watching part of qualifying and his car when straight off into the tires. The coverage didn't mention anything at the time other than it was odd that his car went straight into the tire wall and that his car was still running for awhile after the impact. During the race today they said the had no updates on his condition.

Wow...very similar to the Surtees incident. Unfortunately he wasn't as lucky.

Positive scan outcome for Massa

Ferrari have described as ‘positive’ the outcome of a CT scan carried out on injured driver Felipe Massa on Sunday morning. Massa was awake for some time and has now been returned to an induced coma to aid his recovery.

Massa sustained concussion and a fractured skull during his high-speed qualifying crash at the Hungaroring on Saturday, when he was struck on the helmet by a damper spring from the Brawn car of Rubens Barrichello.

After undergoing emergency surgery in Budapest’s AEK Hospital, Massa was kept under observation in intensive care overnight, suffering no complications. The Brazilian remains in a stable condition and is expected to spend at least the next two to three days under close medical supervision.

He was visited by Barrichello and by FOM CEO Bernie Ecclestone on Saturday evening, before several members of his family, including his wife, flew in from Brazil to be by his bedside on Sunday. Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo will travel to Budapest on Monday.
