Red Bull boss Christian Horner admits that the injuries to a cameraman who was hit by a rouge tyre in the pit lane are a reminder of the dangers of the job.
FOM cameraman Paul Allen was hit by a tyre that flew loose from Mark Webber's Red Bull and was transported by helicopter to the nearby Koblenz Hospital where he is believed to be receiving treatment for a concussion, a broken shoulder and cracked ribs.
Horner expressed his relief that Allen's injuries were not more serious.
"The most important thing today is that the cameraman who got struck by the tyre does not appear to have suffered serious injury," said the Briton.
"It's a timely reminder that working in the pit lane is dangerous. Everyone reacted incredibly quickly and the most important thing is to hear that he seems to be fundamentally OK."
