Indeed. I can't imagine having a spring hit me in the face (even with a helmet) at speed. I didn't know what it was until I did the freeze-frame thing.  My prayers are with him and his family.

I'm sure I'm not the only F1 fan that was out of touch all day and 
missed the news...

Massa was hit with a spring that came off of Barichello's car in 
qualifying.  Major accident, front and base of skull fractures, 
surgery, in stable condition, apparently in a coma to keep swelling 
reduced during recovery...  hit google for the latest since the news 
keeps changing, but the video on Youtube from his in-car camera is just 
freaking scary.

Coming just after Surtees' son was killed from a tire hitting him and 
sending him into the wall also, this is scary and no doubt something 
will change in F1 and other cars...
