AD got out of the car, and hoped he could get the team to see if anything was fixable...until they took him to a hospital and found out he had two broken back vertebrae.

Davidson remains in hospital | Planet F1 | Formula One | News, Standings, Results, Features, Video

Quote:
Sky Sport's commenter Anthony Davidson remains in hospital after breaking his back in a high-speed accident at the Le Mans 24 hours.

Taking part in the legendary endurance race in a Toyota TS030 Hybrid, Davidson's car flipped at the entry to Mulsanne Corner when the Ferrari he was lapping turned in on him. The impact sent Davidson careering into the barriers at high speed.

The 33-year-old was taken to the circuit's medical centre and then transferred to the hospital where scans revealed he had broken two vertebrae in the impact.

"I have felt better, that's for sure," Davidson, who will remain in hospital until Wednesday, said in an interview with Toyota Motorsport.

"I am in a bit of pain, in my lumber area, the middle area of my back. That's the only thing that hurts really so I've been lucky.

"Basically I have two broken vertebrae; T11 and T12. The doctors say the average recovery time is three months, but that's an average person not a professional sportsman or athlete.

"That estimate is to get back to an absolutely healed bone; as strong as it was before. It's more like three weeks until the pain subsides and I get my mobility back fully."

Describing the accident, the former F1 driver said: "I was almost completely past the car after the apex of the kink. I passed a Corvette and a Ferrari with the pro driver sticker on. They were fighting each other and I just assumed the Ferrari ahead was part of their group and therefore another pro.

"The car was all the way to the left as you would expect a pro driver to do. It was only when I got right up to the back that I realised it was one of the amateur-stickered cars.

"But I still wasn't alarmed, I still felt it was a completely legitimate move and thought he would stay to the left, which it looked like he was doing. I made the apex of the corner, started to brake and I was almost out of the corner when I felt contact on the left rear.

"Instantly it spun the car, pivoted round to the left, then took off and turned upside down. At that point I felt I was in an aeroplane out of control. I knew how close the barriers were, and travelling at that speed I was going to be there in no time. That part of the crash was pretty petrifying.

"It crashed back down to the ground, I felt an almighty punch up my spine when the car hit back down on four wheels. I still had my eyes closed and my hands off the wheels, in the brace position. Half a second after that I had the forward impact into the barrier."

He added: "I reopened my eyes and realised I was still here, albeit in a bit of pain. I had feeling and could move my feet; everything was working. I know I should stay in the car, especially with back pain, but initially I felt full of panic and claustrophobia, I just had to get out of the car. It was really odd. I banged the door open and clambered out carefully because I knew I was in pain. I had to stretch out and the closest point was the side of the car, then the medics came over."
Crazy!!

Perrazini probably didn't realize Davidson was passing him on the inside lane. AD was likely in the blind spot for that split second before Perrazini went to close that gap.

nope, she spat it out, picturing JAV scene

The Center's paper says: 'She did not swallow the portion, but spat it out immediately. She complained of a pricking and foreign-body sensation in the oral cavity.

As far as I know you cant; the apps that have tvb shows (including the official tvb app) block the eps from playing unless you're in China/HK (of course you could set up a proxy)

^because the shows are blocked to people outside of HK (apparently). However, you can still view it if you have the links to the episodes. Here

89 year old WWII vet, decorated with 2 bronze stars
recently lost his wife, buried in his land
bills piled up, he wanted to file for bankruptcy
failed to disclose some gold and silver that was set for his retirement
bankruptcy denied
trustee now wants to evict him and exhume his wife
now he's diagnosed with prostate cancer

You'd think the gov't will give the old guy a break =(

Some lady at richmond centre made me pull down my car window and then she started sobbing and stuttering and being all like I need money, I can't go home coz of the Ministry, I'm rly hungry I'm going to cry, blah blah blah. I felt like I couldn't do anything felt bad too, so I gave her like $5 in change, just so that she would leave. Im 99% sure I got scammed but w/e, i only lost $5

She was a pretty good actor, I must say.

Similar case near the richmond oval, some scary looking man was asking my friends for money coz he had diabetes. He was saying that he was going to die if he doesnt get money asap for medications.

Watch out for these people, probably no different than those two filipino ladies who walk around asking for money to donate to some sketchy charity

Quick question... do shops have any legitimate reason to go for a 'spirited test drive' after they install an exhaust on your car? I can't really think of any reason for them needing to redline the car... Got a catback installed on my Z today and I had left the shop to do other things while they were working on it. I come back and see the guys revving my car in the parking lot taking videos with their cell phones... one of them says they took it out for a spin while I was making conversation with them, and when I asked why and if they drove it hard they said "No, just to test for leaks and rattles". Had a DVR in my car and when I went back home to check, the guys revved it a while and had floored it down the road. They put that S-mode crap on so when they downshifted into 2nd to slow down for a turn it rev matched and sounded like it was close to redline again -_-
