Former Formula 1 Driver Anthony Davidson In Huge Crash At Le Mans [VIDEOS]

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!
