Saw that. Sounded like he downshifted and the throttle stuck...literally catapulting him into the tire barrier/wall. Scary.

After GRO crash I don't know what's worse, hitting armco or concrete?

Looks kinda downhill behind the barrier. I'd hate to go through the armco take flight. Hope he is OK!!!

"Felix was conscious the entire time, talking the entire time and he's having some soreness," said Dr. Geoffrey Billows, IndyCar's director of medical services. "He had no loss of sensation anywhere or loss of function and we were able to get him out of the car."
Remarkable...the Dallara chassis did its job.

And to think I was was once selfishly pissed about the Halo and Aeroscreen. Both are saving lives and Jules might still be with us if implemented sooner. Definitely saved GRO
