    The money has been raised already. That's the power of the motorsport community around the world.

    Social media is a ****ty abused tool a lot of the time, but with the right intent, right people and no malice it's a wonderful opportunity to unite people in a common cause.

    I knew the injuries at the weekend, but when it was confirmed to me on Monday, my wife and I actually cried. The shock was horrendous which I never thought would happen to me with my son actually racing.

    I'd got wind of his injuries but was really hoping it was wrong info. When I saw the announcement on the just giving page I was totally shaken. I just hope that's the worse of the news for the lad now.

    Amazing work by the racing community on the just giving site. Close to half a million now. Keep on sharing it!

    Phenomenal response, 670k already. A massive shout must go out to all the big names, who have not only put money in but more importantly given it the exposure and momentum it needed.

    Hope it keeps climbing! A mention of it in the UK F1 coverage may give it another push if they do it.

    I see shark wings and t wings are banned but only next season.

    dissappointed.... they have very little effect relatively but are being held on car all season.
