Mücke Motorsport racer Michael Lewis has been discharged from a London hospital following a sizeable accident at Paddock Hill Bend yesterday.
Attempting a qualifying run, the American ran too wide into the downhill opening bend, losing the rear end of his Dallara F312 and crashing hard into the tyre barrier.
Following the accident, Lewis remained conscious throughout the extraction process and was taken to the circuit’s medical centre. He was then transferred to a London hospital where he was diagnosed with a mild concussion, but suffered from no other significant injuries.
Lewis will not return to the driving seat until the next round at the Red Bull Ring in two weeks time.
