Mercedes chief Toto Wolff banged up in cycling crash

Perhaps inspired by the incredible Tour de France and performance of team Astana with Vincenzo Nibali dominating the 101st edition, Mercedes AMG Petronas took to bicycles for a team-building event in Austria with bad results.

According to reports, team boss Toto Wolff and technical chief Paddy Lowe were both injured in a chain reaction crash with Wolff suffering the worst of it. While Lowe escaped with some cuts and bruises, Wolff spent the night in hospital with a broken wrist, elbow, shoulder and collarbone.

The team were riding along the river Danube in Vienna when the crash occurred. The team tweeted:

“A bit of a carambolage during yesterday’s bike ride resulted in a fractured shoulder, collar bone, elbow and wrist,” Mercedes tweeted. “But as the big man himself said, “Racing is a State of Mind”!! #Totonator”

Susie Wolff tweeted an update on the Totonator:
