Red Bull Racing technical chief Adrian Newey was taken to hospital after suffering a crash while racing in England over the weekend. Newey was involved in a Ginetta G50 support-race to the British Touring Car Championship at Snetterton.
Driving a guest car, he was pushed into a spin, eventually stopping, only to be struck side on by another driver. Newey was removed from the Ginetta on a stretcher and taken to hospital as a precautionary measure. It was said that the RB6’s creator was talking on the way to the hospital, but was still in some pain. Overall, Newey is fine and this was confirmed by Ginetta series boss Lawrence Tomlinson. Red Bull fans can breathe a sigh of relief as he should be up and ready for the next race.
Red Bull is currently top of the Formula 1 Constructors Championship with 312 points, closely followed by McLaren with 304 points. Red Bull drivers Mark Webber and Sebastien Vettel are currently first and third place respectively in the Drivers Championship. 10 points separate the two.
