Is this his season over?

With an expected recovery time of 6 to 12 weeks for this type of break he could miss the next 6 races, he would then only have 10 races to make up all the points lost to get into the end of season shoot out. Who still thinks these new rules are a good idea?

So MCN couldn't even find a picture of him on his swan honda for the article... good to see they still have their finger on the pulse. i was up the banking at nobles today and saw Hill and Ellisons offs. Both looked bad, Hill was very lucky to walk away from that one. get well soon James.

Poor bugger,

I just feel totally gutted for James.He looks so fast and comfortable on the Honda and is obviously happy to be back with a familiar team so things were looking brilliant for his championship chances this year and then this happens.I guess thats racing but what a shame.I just wish him all the best and a fast and healthy recovery.
