Updated FIA Bulletin On Pietro Fittipaldi

Surgery overnight - condition stable

The FIA has issued a further bulletin on the condition of Pietro Fittipaldi after the violent accident suffered in qualifying yesterday in the #10 DragonSpeed BR1 Gibson.

Pietro Fittipaldi is well and his condition is stable.

He was operated on last night for fractures to both his legs, and the operation went well. He remains under observation at the Centre Hospitalier de la Citadelle de Liege.

The left leg, which suffered a complex fracture, has been satisfactorily operated upon. Pietro was completely conscious on exiting the Operating Suite and was able to describe what happened to him. At 10:30 today he left intensive care.

His father was with him throughout the night.

We all wish Pietro a very quick recovery and we hope to see him again in the paddock as soon as possible.
