Alx Danielsson has been confirmed as suffering a broken ankle in the accident which ended first qualifying for the World Series by Renault event at Zolder.

The Swede was involved in what turned out to be a three-car crash after he hit a Colin Fleming's car in the closing minutes of the session. Danielsson was unsighted immediately before the incident, which occurred when Fleming's car rolled to a halt at the side of the track and the Swede, off-line to allow a faster car to pass, was unable to avoid it.

However, the biggest impact occurred when Stefano Proetto arrived and cannoned into the already stranded cars.

Danielsson appeared to be the only injured party, and was attended to at the scene, before being taken to Genk hospital, where a hairline fracture in the ankle was diagnosed. The injury does not require surgery and, despite being left shaken by the impact, Danielsson was able to leave the hospital soon after. At the moment, a precise recovery time is not certain, but it has been confirmed that the DAMS driver will not race tomorrow.
