Mercedes Formula 1 chief Toto Wolff has sustained multiple fractures in a cycling accident in Austria.

Wolff crashed in what the squad has described “a bit of carambolage” during an organised team-building event.

The German fractured his shoulder, collar bone, elbow and wrist in the crash.

The team’s technical boss Paddy Lowe also fell, escaping with cuts and bruising.

Despite the injuries, Wolff is expected to attend the Hungarian Grand Prix this weekend.

Mercedes was quick to make light of the incident on Twitter. comment policy
