    Sure, we dont have to worry about viking raids or scurvy anymore, but instead we make a daily routine of sitting in flimsy, fibreglass (or metal) boxes full of gasoline which are propelled in opposing directions on the freeway at velocities matching that of low flying aircraft.

    This is a roundabout way of saying that cars are dangerous....

    They said if he wasn't wearing a helmet, he wouldn't be here now. His career is over now and even if he does survive, he will never be the same as before with brain injuries he has got

    His injuries are very similar to what Richard Hammond suffered when the rocket car rolled. Major swelling around the brain, coma etc etc.

    He's a strong dude, as all F1 drivers are, and it wouldn't surprise me if he makes a full recovery.

    Update from press conference.

    10:05 GMT - No second operation at this point. - Still in serious condition - Somebody without a helmet would have not survived this accident
    11:08 GMT - It did help that he was a sportsman - Remains in artificial coma
    11:10 GMT - Oxygen intake can be regulated since he remains in Coma - Was conscious after the accident, though very dizzy - Must have had a heavy impact on the stone
    11:11 GMT - Still to early for any longtime prognosis (The press is pressuring this question, but the doctor, not surprisingly, can't say anything longterm at this point. - But he remains in critical conditions)
    11:13 GMT - The Press conference ended.

    Post Press conference: 11:15 GMT - Experts (at N24) say its critical, since it's not just pressure in the head, but also bruises and further say "Still speculative but, consequential damages and a long recovery with brain damages at this scale are a given."

    Full wording via Daily Mail

    -A neurosurgeon has said the injury Michael Schumacher suffered in a ski crash is likely to pose an ongoing risk as doctors attempt to reduce swelling and stem a potential brain bleed.

    -The Formula 1 champion is believed to have been communicating with doctors and family immediately after his horrific ski accident but was in a coma by the time he arrived at hospital.

    -Traumatic brain injury specialist Tony Belli said a sudden decline was typical of brain swelling.

    -He said: "From what we know, he is in a critical state and in intensive care at the moment.

    -"It's likely he will be on a breathing machine with complex monitoring equipment around him. and he's likely to be in a coma still.

    -"Initially, from what I gather, he was talking and trying to reassure people but then he became unconscious quite rapidly.

    -"That would suggest that he probably had brain swelling and that's something that can happen quite often - people initially seem to be OK, and then the brain begins to swell up and things get more serious."

    -The consultant at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham told ITV's Daybreak programme: "You're dealing with a swollen brain, and often the brain bleeds quite easily.

    -"The brain is very friable and it obviously has to be handled with a lot of care, particularly when it's swollen - it can actually sustain further damage during the operation itself.

    "The bleeding in itself could be quite serious because, unfortunately, when the brain has been bruised, it can carry on bleeding for quite some time during the surgery itself."
