I think if it had hit in the visor itself, he'd be dead.
Look at the damage to the helmet - it's destroyed at the impact spot. There's no way his visor would have absorbed the same amount of damage.
F1 has had a miraculous deliverance. Massa is VERY lucky. I remember a little known Mexican F2 driver being killed by a stone thrown into his visor from a car infront - it's just a matter of luck as to where you get hit...

I just hope F1 doesn't have a over-reaction to this by demanding closed cockpits etc etc. Lets remember that Surtees and Massa's incidents are probably the only ones to have occured of this nature in Europe since Imola 1994. 1/1,000,000 chance...

Certainly not one of the last things I wanted to see before going on holiday. Hopefully, Massa will fully recover in time. I hope no one's going to rush any comeback stories for the time being. Given the circumstances, he could be fortunate to be alive.

Sorry if it's offending you, or you don't like it. But it was just to show how lucky he is!
I will remove the picture. :wink:

This picture, took by a Finn television/photographer, was fully shown on brazilian motorsports websites yesterday and today, before the race.

Here in Brazil the televisions and websites (I still can't see what's up on the newspapers) are covering all about the Felipe's accident.

But I believe he's recovering so well. The F1 Brazilian Grand Prix doctor, Dino Altmann, travelled to Hungary yesterday and today he meet Massa on the Hospital, and he said there's not death risk for Massa, just a edema on the front part of his brain, and the Ferrari driver will be on coma till tuesday for better recovering, as recommends the medical standards for this type of edema.

Probably he'll back for the races on the end of the year. The hungarian doctors wake up Massa from coma just for few moments to realize the patient's reaction, and all they said Massa reacted so well.

That was truly bad, I hope he can recover soon.

That accident was one more proof that the efforts to increase the safety are worth every cent!

Now that Massa seems to recover full, let's talk about his replacement.

My guess is that Gene will by in the car at Valencia, as he's the best driver available short-term.

But after that my hope is still, that Michael Schumacher will return. And which circuit would be more fitting for a MS-comeback than Spa?? Okay, maybe Monza, but that's the race directly after Spa. So the calendar looks perfect for his comeback.

I`m also thinking of Gene for the next race due Ferrari never used Badoer in such circumstances and his last race is more than 10 years in the past.

If Ferrari was a car fighting for the world championship or the victory in races maybe Schumi would return, but just for points I doubt it. He quited on the top and pulling a Mansell 94/95 would damage his reputation. If Ferrari keeps on improving like McLaren, maybe you`re right

I hope MS comes back, but from a realistic point of view he has MANY reasons against it.
Ferrari is not competitive, plus this is a car not developing anymore in the future. He just have to drive, and bring home points. That's simply unrealistic if we consider who MS is.
It's not a question if Gené is a good driver or not (I think he is), he's just the right driver compared to Ferrari 2009 goals (3rd place on constructor's championship).

Personally I reckon it'll be Alonso in the Ferrari at Valencia. Renault have been suspended from that race and I can't see him missing a home GP, particularly as he is pretty much the only reason this race exists! OK, so Renault aren't going to be very keen to let him go, especially with all the rumours about Piquet Jr, obviously they'd much rather only replace one driver than two, but we've seen before that a big fat cheque can makes certain problems disappear. It would be interesting to see Grosjean vs. Piquet as well.

Gene or Badoer are probably more likely, but I've just got the feeling that Alonso will engineer his way in there.

Of course, as soon as I write that, Ferrari announce Schumacher as Massa's stand-in.

I didn`t think that this would happen, but a 40 year old Schumi winning in Spa would be awesome. Depends on how good the car is, at current state I think he would be very happy with a podium.
