the accident occured yesterday during Q2 qualifying...a rear suspension spring fell of from Rubens Barrichello's BGP001 and bouncing on the track at about 100+ km/h speed....Felipe's Ferrari F60 was couple hundred meters behind on another hot lap....the spring bounced and went straight to Felipe's helmet....while the F60 was travelling around 120-140mph.....

the combined force was about 1,600 lbs.....from what i heard from Speed or BBC....

Felipe suffered concussion, skull fracture....and was sent to hospital immediately for he is in serious but stable condition....doctors are optimistic about his recovery....but i'm sure it will be sometime for him to be back racing.....maybe in rumors said.....
