Anthony Davidson in massive Le Mans 24 Hours crash
Sky Sports F1 pundit and ex-F1 driver Anthony Davidson was involved in a huge crash while driving a Toyota TS030 HYBRID car in the LMP1 class at Le Mans.
The historic 24 hour race was barely 5 hours in when Anthony Davidson's #8 Toyota collided with Piergiuseppe Perazzini's #81 AF Corse Ferrari. The incident happened at the entry to Mulsanne where it seemed Perazzini did not leave enough space. Davidson took his normal racing line due to his faster car and the blue flags but clipped the Ferrari. His car turned sideways and went airborne for several seconds, flipping over. It once looked like it would do a nose dive but it landed on all 4 wheels. Both cars hurtled into the barriers.
Both drivers went to the medical centre for check ups and emerged unscathed. Davidson complained of some back pain which meant he stayed in his damaged car for some time. It was disappointing for Davidson who was not long into his stint.
The cars were under caution for a long stint as the barriers were repaired.
