Toto Wolff expected in Hungary despite bike crash

23 Jul 2014

Mercedes-Benz's head of motorsport Toto Wolff is expected to travel to Hungary for this weekend's Grand Prix, despite suffering multiple fractures in what the team dubbed “a bit of carambolage” while cycling on Tuesday.

The Austrian fractured his shoulder, collar bone, elbow and wrist in the crash, but was quick to make light of the situation.

"We've decided to leave it to the pros now," Wolff said. "Lewis and Nico are better wheel to wheel at 300 km/h than we are at 30 km/h!"

Mercedes have swept the board in 2014, with Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton winning nine of the opening ten races to sit first and second in the drivers' championship. The team meanwhile are in a commanding position in the constructors' standings, having scored 366 points so far; almost double that of nearest challengers Red Bull on 188.
