Hope he's okay, but I'm concerned, that didn't look good at all :well:

Guess we'll need to wait for an official report but the fact he didn't move inside the car makes me really worried :(

Am I right - the front right wheel of the car was already in some strange position before the impact with the side wall?
To me it looks like a suspension failure...

He was probably knocked out.

Ted Kravitz says he's conscious and talking.

If correct that rules out severe brain trauma which is the main thing :up:

If he was knocked out he will be probably told to sit out on Sunday, even if he is perfectly fine (fingers crossed!)

Two side impacts means suspension penetration into the chassis is a very real possibility.

100 meters before the impact you can see Sergio getting up his right hand to hold his head. Marc Gene on TV saying that's not a good idea, as in this kind of impact the helmet will surely crash against the chassis and it can smash your hand

Yes, this is what caused (minor) hand injury for Nick Heidfeld when he did that spectacular roll in 2006. But you can't fight the instinct.

Very possible he has injured his leg, was it trulli in Japan a few years ago? He had (what looked to me to be) a less severe shunt and cut his leg.

Was it really his mistake or did something on the car give way?

Most important thing is however that he is reasonably fine. If he was unconscious for a while, they won't let him race tomorrow.

Just that nasty bump. Hope they'll do something in time for tomorrow

That bump has been there for as long as I care to remember, I kinda doubt they'll suddenly change it overnight, but you're right, it needs to be considered.

It looked like he ran partly off-line in the tunnel, and had to turn the steering wheel more sharply to the right than normal approaching the braking zone for the chicane, and hit the bump with the front wheels pointing slightly to the right as a result.

Glad to hear that he appears to be essentially uninjured. :up:

They should include these bumps on the braking zones on Tilke tracks, and probably resurface them in Monaco. No one seemed to have a problem in the braking zone with the bridgestone tyres, whilst two blokes went off today.

Glad Sergio is okay.

Precautionary I'm sure.

He looked to be very still for the 5 or 6 seconds of onboard footage we got just befor we saw the first replay. It looks like he almost certainly lost conciouness for a short while, which most likely means no Sergio tomorrow (aide of any other injuries of course).

When I saw The Rosberg Crash In P3 , i was Like, Lucky Boy!! That's a Close one... Then This One,It Reminded Me Of Karl Wendlinger's Crash In 1994 at the Same Spot, and In a Wierd twist Of fate, Karl was also driving a Sauber. Was very Worried when i saw the crash. Hopefully he will not suffer the outcome of Wendlinger's Crash: A Coma and The end Of is Carrer. He came Back After, but Never was the Same Driver... Get Well Sergio!!! Hopefully he will be back for Canada...

He appeared to have his hands up around his helmet just before the impact. I would imagine a wrist / arm injury of some sort there...

The first thing I thought of when I saw the replays was Karl Wendlinger.

Poor Sergio. What a rough impact and I can't imagine he'll race tomorrow. Hope the poor guy is right for Canada. Never like to see a driver get hurt.

Button had a similar looking crash to Sergio in 2003 - http://www.youtube.c...feature=related

He missed the race but drove in the next one. Hopefully Sergio is as lucky.

Whatever good condition he's in right now, as a precautionary he shouldnt race tomorrow imo. Shame but it's just one race. Hoping he'll be back with absolutely no problem for next GP.

Kimi did the same thing on Bridgestones. It's purely a result of coming out of the tunnel too far to the left on the dirty stuff and then not having enough grip to correct position and brake at the same time. Driver error.

Concussion (regardless of staying in hospital overnight) is an automatic non start, so he's out of the race.

When I saw the yellow and then red flag, I asked myself "what happened?". Then they showed the onboard footage of Perez... He wasn`t moving at all.

Thank god he`s ok, I was so happy for him when he beat Kobayashi and made it into Q3. Well, he won`t be racing tommorow for sure, atleast he can watch the CL final and see how Hernandez crushes Barca today :smoking:

With Kimi it was a wet spot he hit under braking. The track was still drying after rain. So comparing Bridgestones on wet track to Pirellis on dry..
