Mike Hakkinen was moved from intensive care unit on Monday, 13 November. However, he will not be released from Royal Adelaide Hospital for at least a further ten days.

According to Paul Bannon, Hakkinen's neural surgery specialist, the tests to determine any potential long term effects will not be possible to conduct for several weeks. According to Bannon, Hakkinen is progressing well, and will be moved to Europe for further treatment once the risk from transportation becomes minimal.

According to Ron Dennis, managing director of McLaren, if Hakkinen is unable to drive at the beginning of the 1996 season, his shoes may be temporarily filled by four-time world champion Alain Prost. However, Dennis cautioned that such speculation was "very, very, very premature."
