Hospital counters Ferrari assessment of Massa

The hospital treating injured Ferrari driver Felipe Massa has offered a more serious assessment of the Brazilian's condition, countering the Scuderia's claim that the news was 'positive' following emergency surgery.

Massa was struck on the helmet by a piece of suspension shed by Rubens Barrichello's Brawn GP machine towards the end of the Q2 phase of the session. The blow knocked Massa unconscious and caused him to spear off the circuit and into the tyre barrier at high speed. Clearly hurt and unable to vacate the cockpit under his own power, Massa was extricated from the car by medical teams and taken, first, to the Hungaroring's medical centre, before being airlifted to the AEK Hospital in nearby Budapest.

Ferrari's post-qualifying statement only discussed the incident, but reported that the 28-year old had 'undergone surgery', and that 'the outcome of the procedure was positive'..

However, while hospital sources confirmed that Massa would 'remain under observation in intensive care', it offered a graver assessment of the Brazilian's condition, reporting that he was being kept sedated on a respirator.

"Massa's condition is serious, life-threatening but stable," Medical director Peter Bazso told a news conference, before confirming chief surgeon Lajos Zsiros' belief that Massa would be brought out from the sedation on Sunday.

Ferrari has promised an update on Massa's condition on Sunday morning.

LiveLeak.com - Felipe Massa freak accident
that's horrific
Coultard commented that if he hadn't been wearing a carbon fibre helmet the result would be more tragic still.

Doctors concerned for Massa’s sight
Doctors treating Ferrari driver Felipe Massa have admitted that the Brazilian's F1 career could be brought to a premature end by injuries sustained in his accident during qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Massa was rushed to hospital following the incident, which saw him hit on the head by a spring that had broken away from the Brawn GP car of Rubens Barrichello.

The 2008 runner-up underwent emergency surgery for a fractured skull and remains in a stable condition in hospital.

However, Robert Veres – one of three doctors who operated on Massa – admitted that there was concern over damage to the Brazilian's left eye which could affect his racing career.

"We can say that the immediate life-threatening condition has been averted but a complication could make it life-threatening again," Veres told a news conference. "Currently he is in a severe but not critical condition and he is stable.

"I don't know (if he can return). It's too early to say anything concerning his future, regarding the race. (We don't yet) know the quality of this damage."

Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo visited Massa in hospital and confirmed that the team was fully focused on the Brazilian's recovery before discussions begin over who could be brought in to replace him behind the wheel.

"For us, the first priority is to find out Felipe's recovery progress and situation he is a very important member of the Ferrari family not just the Ferrari team,” di Montezemolo was quoted by the BBC. "First we will find out the situation with Felipe and then we will see and we will think, without pressure.

"Only at that moment will we make a decision and if we have to take a decision we will make a good decision."

Doctors have stated that - even if the damage to his eye doesn't end his career - Massa is unlikely to return to action this season.

The tire smack the driver on the helmet
http://www.henrysurtees.com/

At Brands Hatch on 19 July 2009, Surtees was hit on the head by a wheel from the car of Jack Clarke after Clarke spun into the wall exiting Westfield Bend. The wheel broke its tether and bounced back across the track into the following group of cars and collided with Surtees' helmet.[4][5] The car continued straight ahead into the barrier on the approach to Sheene Curve, also losing a wheel, and came to rest at the end of the curve with its remaining rear wheel still spinning. This indicated that Surtees had lost consciousness, with his foot still pressing the accelerator.

Surtees was extricated from the car and taken to the circuit's medical centre, where he was stabilised before being transferred to the Royal London Hospital. His death was attributed to severe head injuries, inflicted by colliding with the wheel rather than the following crash with the barriers,[6] and was announced later that day.[7]

The incident was similar to Markus Höttinger's fatal accident in Formula Two at Hockenheim in 1980. Indeed the German Eurosport commentary mentioned Höttinger shortly after Surtees' car came to a rest.[8] Another similar accident occurred during qualifying for the 2009 Hungarian Grand Prix days later when Felipe Massa was struck in the head by a large spring which had broken off the Brawn Mercedes of Rubens Barrichello. Massa was airlifted to a hospital with a skull fracture and a partially destroyed helmet. He is listed in "life threatening but stable" condition.

Surtees' funeral will take place on July 30, at Worth Abbey, near Turners Hill, West Sussex.[9]
