Stewarts are nuts. :wtf: Session should have been stopped immediately so that doctors could arrive at the scene as soon as possible.

I think that was the heave spring, the one that prevents the car from squatting under heavy aero load.

Let's hope his eye is not damaged, because this helmet doesn't look too good anymore. Especially the ripped off visor worries me.

I hope that they brought Badoer or Gene because they might need them tomorrow by the look of Massa...

I hope the future father is oké, we've had enough drama and misery in motorsport this week.
