Mark Webber spent the night in a “satisfactory” condition in hospital following a massive crash at the Six Hours of Sao Paulo.

The former Red Bull racer, who this season swapped F1 for the World Endurance Championship, was involved in a serious accident on Sunday.

He slammed into the wall at the high-speed Turn 14 with the Ferrari of Matteo Cressoni also in the crash.

Both drivers were taken to the circuit’s medical centre before being transported to hospital.

A statement on its official website said: “The race ended under the Safety Car after a serious accident between the #20 Porsche of Mark Webber and the #90 AF Corse Ferrari of Matteo Cressoni.

“Both drivers were taken to the circuit’s medical centre and, after initial examination, to the local Hospital Bandeirantes for further checks, their condition has been reported as satisfactory.”

Webber’s Facebook page reported that the 38-year-old would spend the night in hospital before being released on Monday.
