He's being airlifted, which is both a bad and good sign. The bad is that it means it's serious(as we already figured), but they wouldn't airlift him if he was already dead.

They showed the replay of Wilson's accident.

Thoughts and prayers with Wickens.

Seeing that Dixon crash again on espn, every time they show it I can't believe he's still with us. These cars are amazing.

Doesn't look too good. But I hope we'll hear good news about Wickens.

Was that just a replay or has the helicopter not left yet? That's very bad if it hasn't...

I apologise. The medical helicopter hasnít taken off yet, hope thatís a good thing.

Why do the teams remove the front wing while under the red?

It has not left. Like most SAR, they'll sit running should they be potentially needed to avoid issues during startup.

Chopper just left.


I'm expecting neck or spinal injury. That crash looks a lot like Kenny Brack's 2003 Texas crash.

I think we can relax a LITTLE bit for now.

Between the safety crew not seeming to have any sense of urgency while Wickens was in thew car, and the fact that helicopters are generally not used to ferry corpses to hospitals, it's safeto assume that Wickens injuries, serious as they clearly are, are not IMMEDIATELY life threatening.

(yes, I know nothing is guaranteed, I'm just trying to keep heart rates down)
