Rosberg shock at Germany training camp accident

Nico Rosberg has expressed his shock at an accident during a Mercedes driving event which has left two people in hospital.

Rosberg and DTM driver Pascal Wehrlein were taking part in the event at the German national football team's training camp in Italy on Tuesday, with each driving separate cars carrying squad members Benedikt Hoewedes and Julian Draxler. While driving on a section of road closed to the public, Wehrlein struck two pedestrians who were airlifted to hospital.

While the condition of the two pedestrians remains unclear, Rosberg took to Twitter to express his concern.

“I am shocked by the accident,” Rosberg wrote. “My thoughts are with the two people who were injured and I wish them a fast recovery.”

Mercedes-Benz Motorsport said they “will work in full cooperation with the authorities in determining the exact circumstances of the accident”. Rosberg, Wehrlein, Hoewedes and Draxler were uninjured.

Taz:
ghogmk2: Crash - Is possible to kick out or expose the weasels that are prepared to vote like this?
If they made it that only registered voters could rate as most other sites have then they could get a proper handle on who's doing it but anyone can vote and that's why a lot of sites have given up on anonymous voting. The resident troll and his IP masking tricks will get round this bit it's a step in the right direction.
Cheers Taz, I would love to see Crash's resident Troll (RGT)and his "various" user names broadcast on Crash, so the regular posters could assess these post's and respond accordingly! Would be So much Fun!!!!!!!!!
