Update on Mike Rockenfeller
At 01:50 we can tell you it is good news. Mike has spoken with his family and is fine. He is staying in hospital overnight for observation. He did sustain a small flesh wound to his right arm. The remains of the car have been recovered and it is incredible that the ‘tub’ survived allowing Mike to exit the car without the help of the marshalls. It is a great credit to Audi who have now had the misfortune to destroy two cars but they are relieved that neither driver sustained any significant injuries.
