Gidley's race team, Gainsco Bob Stallings, released a small update on Gidley's condition on its Facebook page early this morning, saying, "Memo Gidley underwent surgery on his left arm and left leg and he is currently under observation and further evaluation at Halifax Health. We will continue to provide updates as they are available." Gidley is also said to have an unstable fractured vertebrae, which will require further surgery before he can be transferred from the Halifax Health center.
Ferrari's Corse Clienti has released a statement on Malucelli's condition, explaining that "Malucelli remains under observation with severe cerebral concussion, but the situation is not critical."
Our thoughts are with both drivers and their families, their teams, and their friends.
