    I was surprised about Bourdais, but it is silly season time.

    Anyone catch Massa's accident today? A piece of Barrichellos rear suspension came off and hit Massa at high speed. It was quite nasty and not far off from a fatality. 15 years ago I am sure he would have been killed.

    Didn't see the crash.

    Saw the end of qualifying when the timing systems went down. It was funny listening to them ad-lib.

    Good to see Alonso do well again.

    Default F1 Driver hit in head by debris

    F1 driver gets hit in the head with road debris and crashes into a wall.
    He is in bad bad shape. Hope he ends up ok.

    What sets him apart is that he’s big, and he can skate, and he can protect the puck from anyone. If you’re trying to get it and he doesn’t want you to get, you’re not going to. -Justin Williams on Kopitar

    Didn't see the crash but have heard and read about it. Scary stuff, hope he recovers fully. Sad about Surtees, too. Looks like technology has the leg up on safety again. Let's hope they figure things out soon.

    I saw it pretty scary, you talk about bad luck.

    I have to say I felt ill when I saw it, obviously at the time nobody knew about the debris that hit him but when I saw him not moving in his car I instantly thought of Ayrton Senna. Thankfullly it looks like Massa will be fine.

    The spring to the head was nuts. What are the chances that a small spring would be in the exact same place as Massa's head at that exact moment. Bad luck.

    At least he he is OK. Thats too bad about Surtees. Its crazy how dangerous car racing can be. I wonder if Massa will be back next month in Valencia.

    And don't the teams usually have a reserve driver to take over in instances exactly like this?

    I think they do have a reserve driver but I think out of respect Ferrari didint race him. Barrichello's response was a bit hysterical to say the least(Understandably so though) and he was saying that the Surtees and Massa accidents were a sign that the sport is unsafe and needs improvement etc.

    My take, and I am sitting in my armchair as I write this is that when you consider the speeds and obviously the impacts in this Sport it is incredibley safe. Gone are the days of decapitations and drivers burning to death. These guys are very well paid to take part in a high speed sport that has large risks, if safety can be improved then great but we cant turn these cars into bumper dodgem cars.
