At yesterday's Indycarlopp in Detroit, Felix Rosenqvist crashed.
The driver drove straight into the protective fence at high speed, which caused a major rescue effort.
Via his Instagram account, he now sends a greeting from the hospital bed.
“Scary crash today, 164 km / h right into the wall.
I feel generally okay, but due to the trauma from the bang, I am unfortunately not allowed to drive tomorrow .... Big race until that time, so sad that we could not take it all the way to the finish ", writes the 29-year-old on Instagram.
"The most important thing is that he is okay"
Geoffrey Billows, the Indycar organization's own doctors on site, announced yesterday that the injuries were not serious.
Rosenqvist was taken to a hospital in Detroit for further examination.
- The most important thing right now is that Felix is okay, said Swedish racing colleague Marcus Ericsson in Viasat's broadcast.
Oliver Askrew replaces Rosenqvist in the competition.
