Former Formula 1 driver and current Toyota racer Anthony Davidson is in hospital after a huge airborne crash during this weekend’s Le Mans 24 hour race. The 33 year old Davidson’s car went airborne on the Mulsanne Straight, when a Corse Ferrari 458 Italia driven by Piergiuseppe Perrazini turned into him. As a result both drivers ran into the tire wall.
Toyota soon issued a statement saying that there are no signs of any injuries and Anthony is suffering from schock and back pain.
Contrary to Toyota statement, Anthony tweeted soon from hospital:
“Well that was a big one! Lying in a French hospital with a broken back wasn’t what I had in mind at this stage in the race…”
This afternoon he tweeted again with a photo:
Feeling a bit sore today, but generally just happy to be alive! http://twitter.com/antdavidson/status/214322453474840577/photo/1
Looks like his first tweet was not correct after all and he just feels sore from the crash to the wall. We wish Anthony all the best!
