Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone responded to the pit-lane accident that occurred during the German Grand Prix, saying that cameramen will be allowed on the pit wall only from now on.
Cameraman Paul Allen was hit by a wheel that came loose from Mark Webber's car following a botched Red Bull pit stop.
Allen was taken to hospital after breaking his collarbone and cracking two ribs, although he is expected to make a full recovery.
"I've been in close contact with everybody who has been dealing with the matter," Ecclestone told Press Association Sport.
"It's a terrible thing to say, but it was just one of those things.
"There was a whole bunch of mechanics and the tyre could have hit any one of those guys. The cameraman just happened to be looking the wrong way at the wrong time.
"In future, all our camera crews will only be allowed to film from the pit wall."
Ecclestone's announcement comes after several team principals called for helmets to be worn by everyone that works in the pit lane.
