    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

    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

    Go well Jackie!!! Formula One still needs your love
