Here's hoping that the media respect the family (no repeat of Prince George phone call scandal).

Very surprising to me. Maybe it's somewhat normal for people to wake up after a long coma, but it sounded like it was game over for him from what I read. Great news though.

I almost cried when I heard. I know I don't know him but he's one of the greats of the sport. And if you survive racing in F1 in the days when people were dying (pre 1994) then I really want you to go on to die of old age!
Obviously it's now important to allow them their privacy, but I hope they don't keep us completely in the dark, and we get at least one update about how he is and how is brain is doing - we don't know if he'll be the same person or not.

Meh, hes an F1 driver, adrenalin junkie, dying in a skiing accident would be pretty apt compared to a nursing home.

As sad as it is when Colin McRae and people die flying helicopters after their driving careers its not all that much of a surprise.

All the news says is that technically he is no longer in a coma and he can see and hear. What state he is in remains unstated.

Well, to be fair, before Ratzenburger and Senna's death there hadn't been any deaths in F1 in 8 years. Things really had improved since the 70s when it was a total blood sport.

Then again I did just have a look on Wikipedia and found out that it was only last December that a test driver died (see here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mar%C3%ADa_de_Villota). Tragic.

But there were still some serious injuries as well - Hakkinen 1995 being a prime example.

Yeah, Maria lost her eye in a straight line test crash and died about 18 months later. Incredible woman, wish I could have met her.

Yeah, I knew but about the crash but I only just found out she died. RIP to her.
