Ferrari's Felipe Massa will not race in tomorrow's Hungarian Grand Prix after the Brazilian was hospitalised following an accident at the end of Q2 this afternoon. Having just secured a place in Q3, Massa was hit by a piece of flying debris, thought to be a suspension component from Rubens Barrichello's Brawn GP car, before going head-on at high speed into a tyre barrier.
Pictures from the accident scene showed Massa being lifted from his damaged F60 bleeding above his left eye, with the debris having caused major damage to his helmet. Although he was believed to have briefly lost consciousness directly after the hit, Massa is currently conscious in a Budapest hospital to where he was airlifted from the circuit.
The news moves all drivers below Massa, from Sébastien Buemi down, up one position on tomorrow's starting grid. To see the provisional grid, click here.
