That was a crazy force when you see it hitting him on TV. I was shocked that he wasn't more seriously injured.
Thank god he's ok. It was nice or Rubens to go down and make sure he was ok, it might have been his car part but there is nothing he could have done about it.
As Martin Brundle said on BBC, I don't know what went o.ver the piece to send it flying into the air. You couldn't see any other cars up ahead on track. Wonder what knocked it back into the air.

Fair play to Massa for somehow managing to be capable of getting on the brakes before hitting the wall. I don't know if he'll be recovered for the race tomorrow, I suspect he'll be ok but kept out on precaution on doctors advice.

not looking too good video on you tube just shows decellaration, then a small amount of braking, no real effort to control the car, so more or less knocked out by it!

Can't say as I feel too positive until we get more word... He appeared to be bleeding, and while some reports say he was talking, some say he was doing say in an agitated manner... And then sedated.
Fingers crossed! And hope to hear good news soon, but no way I see him racing tomorrow...
Horrible accident, and so bizarre and untimely to boot.

2 Weeks in a row... RIP young Henry Surtees! My thoughts go out to Felipe. I seriously hope he is ok and is back to drive another day... to achieve the legendary statis he deserves!

all i can say is thank god that it glanced off the side of his helmet rather than hitting him full in the face.

also thank god it wasn't a piece larger than the reported torsion bar from the brawn car.

let's hope he makes a full recovery.

i wish fellipa a quick recovery especialy after last week, but i do wish eddie would keep his ill informed comments in his head, true information is better than speculation from his "spies" .
