Wednesday 23-July-2014 13:25

Toto Wolff will be in pain for the next few days after he was seriously injured in a cycling accident.

The Mercedes motorsport boss fractured his shoulder, collar bone, elbow and wrist during a team building exercise in Vienna, Austria, on Tuesday, but he should be fit to make it to the pitwall in Hungary.

Technical chief Paddy Lowe was also injured in the incident, but escaped with cuts and bruising.

The Merc Twitter account took time out to compare him to actor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Of course they had some time to poke fun at him as well.

Toto: "We've decided to leave it to the pros now. Lewis & Nico are better wheel to wheel at 300 km'h than we are at 30 km/h!"

Meanwhile his wife Susie Wollf, the Williams test driver, knows she will have her hands full over the next few days.
