Toyota Racing have confirmed that Anthony Davidson was not seriously injured in the accident he sustained at the end of the fifth hour of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

At the wheel of the #8 Toyota TS030 Hybrid Davidson was clipped by a GTE Am category Ferrari 458 approaching Mulsanne Corner. The Toyota flipped into the air before landing on the left-rear corner and hitting the tyre wall protecting a metal Armco nose first.

Davidson was taken to the circuit medical centre where doctors assessed he was suffering from shock and back pain. He will go to a local hospital for precautionary checks.

The driver of Ferrari – which rolled over after hitting the same tyre wall – was also not seriously injured in the crash, though both cars were forced to retire as a result of the accident.

The crash caused a safety car period of over an hour as track officials worked to repair the barriers at the corner.
