Just seen a picture of the accident that marca has released. I really hope it isn't too serious. Thoughts are with her and the team

This is awful news and really do hope she pulls through and makes a full recovery.

I'm puzzled though as to how a massive truck can be parked on the pit entry in the first place, this could have been easily avoided with a bit of foresight!

whoever left that tail lift at that height needs investigating for neglect. It is common practice to NEVER leave a tail lift in any position other than all the way up or all the way down. H&S failure. Poor Gal.

This is what happens when F1 tries to attract a wider audience .... halfwits, sociopaths, and degenerates are drawn to our sport :(.

I would ask Crash.net to contact "jjhh"'s ISP to inform them.

jjhh ... you worthless pile of junk

@David

Yeah, I reported it, think it was removed straight away. Should block that IP address, they can do that.

According to marca she has been able to talk to family. Great news if its true.

Very sad and tragic. That it happened to a woman driver makes it all the more so. Can only say Godspeed to her and those around her.
