So during the Hungarian GP this year, Massa was hit by a suspension spring, and suffered a concussion, and multiple skull fractures.
Anyway, he has finally been cleared to start testing in a 2007 Ferrari F1 car!! He has been doing some practise in a cart, and some on the simulator, but this is a HUGE step, and he is looking to come back next march for the 2010 season.
This whole thing says so much about the safety in the cars and how much better the are now then they used to be. Same with the helmets. He should have died.
