Ferrari F60 - Felipe Massa accident 26 July 2009

Felipe Massa's huge qualifying crash in Hungary was triggered when the spring from the third damper on Rubens Barrichello's Brawn came loose. It hit the F60 firstly just in front of the cockpit (right arrow - near the triangular engine cut-off sticker), before then striking the cockpit's side protection (left arrow - quite damaged, this area is made of a special foam to absorb impacts) and finally the left side of Massa's helmet.
