The driver of one of Renault's team trucks was hospitalised after a motorway incident while travelling to the Hungarian GP
Back-to-back races can be a tough task for the teams as they have to pack up everything straight after a race and then immediately travel to the next location. In this case that involves driving the near-1000km from the Hockenheimring to the Hungaroring.
Unfortunately, during the journey, a Renault F1 team truck driver went through the central reservation, across the road on the other side and into the trees.
Thankfully, a statement from the team mentioned that although the driver has been taken to hospital, he hasn’t suffered any injuries.
Perhaps he thought he was in with a decent chance of being one of the first lorries to reach the Hungaroring and lost it under the pressure…
In all seriousness though, it’s great to hear that the driver is OK from an accident that could have been a whole lot nastier. It’s really not been a great couple of days for the team, has it?
