Mark Webber had a serious accident with his Porsche 919 Hybrid at the last hour of the 6 hours of Sao Paulo, with Matteo Cressoni and the Ferrari F458 Italia of the team 8Star Motorsports to be involved in the incident.
The Australian is in good health, with Porsche writing on Twitter a few minutes later that the driver has not been seriously injured. Cressoni was also not injured. The severity of the accident demonstrates once again the degree of the protection of drivers and how much importance is given by the regulations on the safety of all people involved.
Porsche gave a press release saying that Mark Webber suffered bruises and a concussion and spent the night in a local hospital in Sao Paulo. Physicians monitor the progress of his health and he will return to England later in the week.
