    That's what we must all hope for if he survives. Reading about it yesterday it seems that it was utter sheer bad luck that he fell the way held did on that rock. A slight difference in trajectory would have saved him. It shows that however much you try to protect yourself in extreme sport it will always be dangerous. I don't think Hamilton did himself any favours posting pictures of him skiing without a helmet.

    Where did you read that Axel? I don't think there has been a statement from the hospital for a couple of days.

    No there has not been an official statement for the last 2 days. His official spokesperson has stated that they cannot, and will not speculate as to what the outcome of his treatment has or will be, or the prognosis.of any treatment will be.

    I think we would all be well advised to restrict our information to the hospital official announcements and nowhere else, particularly following the inaccurate comment from a member of the family.

    It has since been stated, his helmet, which had a head cam on it, was split into two halves. Must have been some impact. It has also been reported that the ski shops at the resort, has since the accident, sold out of protective helmets.
    Sad way to get the obvious message across.

    all we can all hope for is for him to make a recovery of some kind even if he is left brain damaged or somthing we atleast want him to be alive at the end of all of this

    What we might feel and what his family might feel are quite different especially in the appalling event that his life was saved but that he lived with severe brain damage and little or no quality of life.

    They certainly have. Just to think that England were favourites to retain the ashes.
    I believe the odds against a 5 - 0 whitewash were 66 - 1. A few people will have made a tidy sum.
    If the Pakistan side had collapsed the way England did, there would be a lot of mutterings.

    I agree Gary, What's the point of being just a living vegetable, and 100% having to rely on others.He wouldn't settle for 2nd best, it would have to be a 100% recovery or nothing for such a once active guy.

    Oi! Who are you calling a wazzuck?

    I have made a personal risk assessment and here in the wilds of East Anglia choose never to wear a cycling helmet.

    Be fair its difficult to do a helmet up with webbed hands and six fingers! I never saw your most famous inhabitant Allan Smethurst wear one either

    Mercedes confirm that it was a front wing failure that caused Lewis Hamilton's crash. Here's what the Briton, in his second year with the team, had to say: "For me it's an incredibly positive start to be the first car out on track and completing a good number of laps.

    "Other teams have been going out for single-lap runs, starting a few hours after we had first hit the track, so to have started running through our test programme was very encouraging.

    "The car feels quite good, especially considering it's so early in our programme, so overall it's been a positive day. Of course, it's unfortunate to end the day early when everyone has worked so hard and we had looked like easily completing the most mileage of anyone here today, but we'll make that track time back and it's better to have these things happen now than in Melbourne."

    day two of testing is well under way with many teams already doing their instilation laps and some drivers doing some timed laps with four times being set which are as follows:

    jensom button : 1:38.944

    kimi raikonen : 1:39.148

    sergio perrez : 1:41.444

    estiban gutierrez : 1:44.610

    obviously these times do not mean much but this is just an idea of the lap times being set

    All quiet on the circuit once again but a bit of breaking news to bring you. McLaren have confirmed the appointment of Eric Boullier as the team's racing director.

    Boullier resigned as Lotus' team principal last Friday.

    A McLaren statement reads: "Working with Jonathan Neale (chief operating officer) and his senior colleagues within McLaren racing, Eric will ultimately report to the chief executive officer of McLaren Racing, an all new position, whose yet to be appointed occupant will in turn report to Ron Dennis."

    Ah!! Chasing the biggest total ever, aren't they? Test cricket is my game, ODIs I follow without great enthusiasm but 20/20 leaves me cold, I'm afraid.....
