Former F1 driver Mark Webber has been described as in a “satisfactory” condition after being involved in a high-speed crash at the World Endurance Championship in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The 31-year-old Australian gave spectators a thumbs up before being evacuated to a local hospital after a dramatic crash where his Porsche slammed into a side wall after colliding with Italy’s Matteo Cressoni, who is also uninjured.
The race ended behind a safety car after the accident.
A statement on Webber’s Facebook page reads:
“Mark has been taken to a local hospital in Sao Paulo and will stay overnight for precautionary checks.
“He is in a satisfactory condition and his team mates Timo Bernhard and Brendon Hartley have gone to see him.
Thanks to everyone for your messages!”
