No head injuries or broken bones for Kovalainen

McLaren have established that Kovalainen’s speed was approximately 240km/h when his front-left tyre deflated and about 130km/h when he hit the tyre barrier. He experienced a 27g deceleration.

For Kovalainen to have come out of that horrifying crash virtually unscathed is amazing. It just shows how well thought out the safety precautions and devices in Formula 1 are today.
