    He needs to get in shape and have an epic battle with Mario at the Las Vegas IndyCar race to win the $5,000,000 prize.

      Now that’s a nice wish!
      But first priority is that he walks out of the hospital, rest comes after that

    Oh no. Glad it looks like the danger’s passed. Sir Jackie has always been conscious about his health, hopefully this will stand him in good stead in his recovery.

      Yeah I’m about 4 minutes away from the Hospital, although I’m not going to go bother him.

      Best wishes Sir Jackie Stewart!

      Whats up with F1? everyones falling apart except Bernie, but I have a sneaking suspension he’s probably in negotiations with the Grim Reaper to add 7% increase to his life year of year.

    Sounds pretty minor but let’s hope it stays that way. Get well soon Jackie.

    I wonder if he requested tartan hospital bed linen?

    Sir Jackie is probably the best ennemy of Mosley so he must survive that stupid sexman and dictator

    Get well soon Jackie, “Free Thinkers” are in short supply in the F1 community.

  19. Oh no! Jackie is my all time favourite F1 champ. Such an inspiration on and off the track, done some fantastic charity work, his efforts on safety, inspirational man.

    Get well soon Jackie, best of luck, thoughts with you and your family.
