Ferrari driver Felipe Massa remained in “life-threatening” but stable condition on Sunday following surgery on multiple skull fractures

Massa stable

Ferrari driver Felipe Massa remained in “life-threatening” but stable condition on Sunday following surgery on multiple skull fractures. Peter Bazso, the AEK hospital medical director, told reporters that Massa would remain sedated until today, but will be woken up periodically during that time. When asked whether Massa’s life remained in danger, Bazso answered: “Yes, of course.” Bazso said doctors were able to “remove the broken bones and stabilize the area,” which was necessary since Massa arrived with “an open skull fracture and a contusion.” He did not specify how long it would take Massa to recover, or whether there would be any long-term effects of the injury. Bazso said a CT scan revealed “expected results after an operation of this type.” The spring from Rubens Barrichello’s Brawn GP car bounced into Massa’s helmet as he reached speeds of about 120 m.p.h. during qualifying for the Hungarian GP on Saturday. The impact concussed Massa, who then plowed into the protective tire barrier.
