Edoardo Mortara has hit the tire barrier very hard due to car issue during the start practice in Diriyah E-Prix’s FP3.
There was a big scare today during the third free practice for the second race in Diriyah. Venturi driver Edoardo Mortara crashed into a tire pile at apparently full speed for reasons that had not yet been explained.
So far, it is suspected that there has been a technical defect in the Swiss driver’s car, but more detailed information has not yet been released. Now Venturi Racing has given the first all-clear. On Twitter, the team has announced that Mortara is on his way to the hospital so that they can rule out any worse injuries. He is also conscious, and he can talk.
A Venturi team spokesperson said: “Edoardo is conscious, talking and on his way to hospital for precautionary assessments.”
