    Any more news on Zanol?
    It's usually pretty bad when everybody is silent like this .... :cry

    How the hell did he hurt himself that badly? Do we know how he crashed?


    Recover Zanol. :clap

    It does appear to be pretty bad - Johnny Campbell stated in a radio interview this morning that he was still in a coma; no prognosis and little other information, although he must have hit his head pretty hard. It's been over a week now!

    Lets all pray for a speedy recovery.

    Too old - can you medically bring people out of a coma?

    I'm not a doctor, but I believe only if you medically induced it in the first place, which is possibly not the case?
    I'm sure we have a doctor out there in F5 land and may hear some differing scenarion, but probably best not to speculate too much on something as sensitive as this.

    Pretty awful ongoing news at best, let us just pray he recovers quickly and fully!

    Felipe Zanol won just waking up in the hospital where he is hospitalized in the United States!

    We received the news earlier, directly from his mother, Dora Zanol won. She said that he recognized his wife Luciana and the friend and mechanic Ricardinho.

    We hope to bring other positive news every day and continue the chain for the recovery of our champion, is going right!

    Thanks for everyone's support.

    VAAAAAI, ZANOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!
