Král Returns to Super Nova

Josef Král returns to his Super Nova seat this weekend following his recovery from a dreadful mid-season accident at Valencia in June. 

In an accident that was eerily similar to the famous one suffered by Mark Webber at the European Grand some hours later, the Czech driver was following Rodolfo Gonzalez down one of the circuit long straights, when Král clipped the rear of the Arden International machine and flew over the top. Král then momentarily came down on his gearbox, before landing hard on all four wheels and slamming the barriers. The 20-year-old suffered two fractured vertebrae in the accident and was replaced for the following races by GP2 veteran Luca Filippi.

Thankfully the two-month gap between Monza and Abu Dhabi has afforded Král the opportunity to fully recover from his injuries and race again.
