    It went into the wall forwards at about a 45-degree angle. Footage showing him being taken on a gurney into the ambulance with neck supports, which is probably normal procedure.

    It was a big one, hit the wall very hard. Thought he might be seriously injured but as soon as the car came to a stop he was fiddling with his helmet straps.

    This Twitter user has made a very good point that the SAFER barrier probably saved Bourdais' life here... The description and shots i've seen reminded me of Piquet's Indy shunt (albeit at a higher speed)...

    Good grief. I hope he's ok; that car just seemed to accelerate to the scene of the accident! The rear had gone loose very early in the turn though!

    It all looks pretty serene until one goes into the wall - then the sheer speed shows.

    I do enjoy Sato and Alonso being mentioned in the same sentence...
