The FIA issued a further bulletin on Saturday morning, clarifying the condition of Pietro Fittipaldi after his violent accident in yesterday’s FIA WEC qualifying session in the No. 10 DragonSpeed BR1 Gibson at Spa.
The statement reads:
“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.”
