Max Mosley, President of Formula One racing’s governing body the FIA, has asked the organisation’s Safety Commission to prepare a report on recent debris-related accidents.

It follows the death of Henry Surtees in an F2 race at Brands Hatch after he was hit by a loose wheel and the serious injuries sustained by Felipe Massa in Hungary after he was struck by a spring from Rubens Barrichello's Brawn.

The FIA Safety Commission, which is made up of medical and technical representatives from all areas of motor sport, will submit its report and recommendations to the FIA’s World Motor Sport Council.

According to the FIA, preliminary findings suggest the helmet being used by Massa may have played a significant role in limiting the injuries sustained. The FIA 8860 helmet, which took eight years to develop by the FIA and FIA Institute, provides increased protection in all key impact areas.
