Mark Webber will stay overnight at the Leforte Hospital in Sao Paulo following his horror crash at the World Endurance Championship finale at Interlagos.
The former Red Bull Formula One driver made contract with Ferrari’s Matteo Cressoni on the 300km/h curve, causing his Porsche to burst into flames after making secondary contact with a barrier.
According to the Australian’s official Facebook page, he is in a “satisfactory condition” and has been visited by teammates Brendon Hartley and Timo Bernhard in hospital.
Webber gave the crowd a thumbs up whilst he was carried off the track on a stretcher, before being taken by ambulance to the track’s medical centre.
“Mark Webber is reported to be awake and alert and taken to the circuit’s medical centre for further examination. Matteo Cressoni was examined at the side of the track and did not go to the Medical Centre,” the FIA World Endurance Championship said in a statement.
