AUTO+ Medical - Issue 16
April 5, 2019  
Welcome to the new issue of AUTO+ Medical, featuring the latest news from the world of motor sport medicine.


Dear colleagues and friends,

Welcome to the new issue of AUTO+ Medical, featuring the latest news from the world of motor sport medicine. 
In our cover story, we look at the FIA’s Serious Accident Study Group and how it analyses crashes from all disciplines of motor sport worldwide. It is an initiative from FIA President Jean Todt, who has pushed to collect data from accidents across the world and enable the FIA to learn and improve on safety. 

For the first time, we have included video content in this journal and you can see an example of this within our HANS device feature, that looks back on the legacy of Dr Robert Hubbard and forward on how frontal head restraints will evolve. 

In our Road Back feature, we speak to Haas F1 reserve driver Pietro Fittipaldi about his recovery after breaking both his legs in a crash during last year’s 6 hours of Spa Francorchamps. There is also video content showing his training regime with physios in the United States. 

The big interview features FIA Medical Commission Deputy President and Chief Medical Officer of the Brazilian Grand Prix, Dino Altmann, who discusses his 30+ years of working as a trackside doctor.
