    1. Same hope here.

  5. Oh dear, not really sure what to say about this other than get well soon. I hope we don’t have to start writing testimonies soon.

  6. 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.

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

  7. I will be praying for you Sir Jackie.

    1. Will you? Or did you say that very, very loosely.

  8. 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.

  9. Hell be up and about in no time. This isnt gonna stop him, hes a racing driver.

      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.

      1. This isn’t the thread I wass expecting to find a nominee for COTD in… :)

      2. Yep, I’m right by the hospital. He’s probably in more danger now than he was before he got to hospital.

        Hope he recovers well.

      3. Just out of curiosity are you a student at Brunel or just live in the area?

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

    I wonder if he requested tartan hospital bed linen?

    1. He’d do it too…

      Get well Jackie.

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