Hope He's Okay

Lewis Hamilton had to be airlifted to a hospital after what was described as a "huge accident" during Saturday qualifying for the Grand Prix of Europe. Hamilton has already checked in with the media, saying he's "fine."

The team will wait for results from a CT scan to determine if Lewis will race tomorrow.

This dramatic accident by the first black man to win a Formula 1 race coincidentally comes on the heels of a similar fate to befall his American motocross doppelganger, James Stewart, the first black man to win a major motocross championship. Stewart crashed hard in practice last Saturday at the Unadilla around of the American National motocross championship, and also had to undergo a CT scan procedure. Also like Lewis, James is waiting to determine whether he'll compete in this Sunday's race.

The universe works in mysterious ways.
