Toto Wolff injured in bike crash
Toto Wolff will have to watch Mercedes aim for its tenth victory of the season at the Hungaroring in a sling after suffering multiple fractures from a crash during a bike ride.
Wolff fractured his shoulder, collar bone, elbow and wrist in the crash, which was confirmed by his wife Susie Wolff and the official Mercedes Twitter account on Wednesday. Wolff was cycling with a group - which included Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg - on a road close to the River Danube when the crash occurred.
The injuries are not serious and Mercedes used the opportunity to make a comparison between Wolff and fellow Austrian Arnold Schwarzenegger - famous for roles such as the Terminator - now that the former has a metal plate in his wrist.
Mercedes also tweeted Wolff's reaction to the crash:
Toto: "We've decided to leave it to the pros now. Lewis & Nico are better wheel to wheel at 300 km'h than we are at 30 km/h!"— MERCEDES AMG F1 (@MercedesAMGF1) July 23, 2014
Susie, who herself had been doing some cycling this week in the build-up to Hungary, tweeted a picture of Wolff in his sling:
My husband the hero! As we know, boys will be boys... Looks like I am on nurse duty for the next few weeks! pic.twitter.com/ngbA6kix9J— Susie Wolff (@Susie_Wolff) July 23, 2014
