During this weekend’s Spielberg F3 Championship race at the Red Bull Ring, a horror crash unfolded between drivers Ryan Tveter, Peter Zhi Cong Li and Pedro Piquet, which started when Tveter lost control, making a massive dust cloud. The accident took two of the drivers to hospital.
Peter Zhi Cong Li and Ryan Tveter team (team Carlin), released this statement:
“Following transfer to a local hospital, Carlin drivers Peter Zhi Cong Li and Ryan Tveter have received further medical assessment after a serous incident during Race 1 of Round 4 of the FIA Formula 3 European Championship in Spielberg today. Having been taken to hospital by ambulance, Ryan has been discharged with heavy bruising to his knee.
Following initial assessment at the medical centre, Peter was transferred to a University hospital by helicopter. Peter is undergoing treatment for multiple broken bones in his heel, which will require surgery in the near future. Peter has also been diagnosed with four fractured vertebrae which do not require surgery. While suffering with other bruising and small injuries, Peter is alert and speaking with team personnel.”
Good to hear, the drivers sustained only non-life threatening injuries and are recovering! Get well boys!
