Massa is safe

July 28, 2009

As I am sure many of you already know, Felipe Massa is now out of the danger zone. Acording to doctors monitoring him, he has shown great improvement over the past 24 hours and is now out of his induced coma and was even able to converse with family and friends.

This is fantastic news and something everone was awaiting to hear.

What isnt going to be so easy for everyone to swallow though is the news that the injury may have cut short the F1 career of the affable Brazilian.

Doctors have yet to diagnose Massa regarding the injury to his left eye, claiming that, “We can give no positive neither negative answer to this, because at this stage the vision cannot be examined.”

Frighteningly, it has been found that the spring in question hit Massa in the head at an absolutely astonishing 162mph ( 260kph )

I for one simply cannot fathom how anyone can survive an impact like that but thanks to God and modern safety in F1, we still have Massa among us.

This should never be understated. The last time we lost f1 drivers, we lost 2 in succession, Roland Ratzenberger and of course the great Ayrton Senna. It appeared for a morbid moment that history was destined to repeat itself in some way and even more unsettling that it involved another Brazilian.

Further news to come as Massa’s condition gets updated.

  1. His survival had little to do with the technology/ safety features of the F1 car, an much more to do with the Helmet worn.

    It may cost $30,000usd, but it sure as hell is a little price to pay for your life.
