BUDAPEST - A full investigation into the causes and repercussions of Ferrari driver Felipe Massa's dreadful freak accident during qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix was launched yesterday.
The investigation will be conducted by the sport's ruling body, the International Motoring Federation, with the Brawn GP team.
Massa suffered skull and eye injuries, as well as brain concussion, when he was struck on the head by a spring that broke loose from compatriot Rubens Barrichello's Brawn GP car.
The debris hit Massa's helmet just above his left eye at around 275kph.
It knocked him unconscious and caused him to crash into a tyre barrier at turn four of the Hungaroring circuit.
Massa was reported to be stable in hospital yesterday morning, his Ferrari team said, and he will have a further scan later in the day.
The accident came just six days after Briton Henry Surtees, 18, was killed after being hit on the head by a wheel from another car that crashed during a Formula Two race at Brands Hatch in England. - Sapa-AFP
