Formula One driver Felipe Massa 'in life-threatening condition' after freak crash at

A very lucky individual,

Let's hope he makes a full recovery

Getting hit in the head by a foreign object, eh? Shades of the late Welsh F1 driver, Tom Pryce.

Fortunately Massa was able regain some composure to at least get on the brakes to some extent to slow the car before going into the tire barrier. That picture makes me think about Senna and what happened to him.

Spoiler? It was during qualifing. If you follow F1 that closely and know Massa wasn't hurt last round, wouldn't it stand to reason that the accident was during practice or qualifing this round?

UMMMMMMMMMMM.... Yeah I follow F1. But YEAH I was at the track all day. In fact, I stayed up to watch Practice this morning, BUT I have to watch Qualifying on delay, so YEAH IT"S A FVCKING SPOILER!!!

I don't care that it is duing Q. That is why bump qualifying is interesting.
