"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Felipe Massa Qualifier - Onboard Video

You can see he makes no attempt to control the car as it goes into the corner. The video then shows what's thought to be a piece of Barrichello's suspension which appears to hit Massa on the head - so it looks like he was dazed or even knocked out before he entered the corner:

The latest news is that he's still in intensive care following surgery but is responding well.
UPDATE: Within minutes of posting this, the hospital issued another statement saying that Massa is now in a 'life-threatening condition'. Let's all hope he pulls through this. Fingers crossed.

    Thankfully the signs are encouraging he'll live. I was really concerned for a while. Kudos to you for reporting it on your blog, it's a departure from your usual content but it is important and needed saying.

    /I still have my fingers crossed though, not completely out the woods yet.

  2. This morning is looking better - the latest is "serious but stable" which is more positive than last night, thank goodness.

    I usually post on the Grand Prix but with a twist - eg for Monaco weekend I posted the 1st ever race there. If you click the Grand Prix label you'll pull up all the relevant posts and later there's a Schumacher onboard video at qualifying in Hungary 2002.
