Hopefully some of the comments make it sound as if it isn't as bad as it could have been. He doesn't need surgery and Chip Ganassi said that he will be fine.

I believe 13 spectators were injured and 2 of them needed hospital treatment although I have not heard anything of their condition.

Franchitti is to retire from racing as a result of the injuries sustained in the crash.

Combined IndyCar/CART Champ Car stats: :winner:

Starts: 266
Wins: 31
Podiums: 92
Poles: 35
Fastest laps: 23

(nicked from autosprout)

not bad career! - and only sensible decision. think he would do a good job on the pitwall if he was interested -always seemed a very sharp chappie to me.

Sad to see him retire. 3 Indy wins is fantastic. He would be great on the pitwall
