Mercedes’ Norbert Haug has issued an official apology to Williams after one of its mechanics suffered minor injuries due to a stray wheel of Nico Rosberg in the Hungarian Grand Prix pit lane.
With bedlam having taken over in the pit lane as the Safety Car was suddenly deployed for on-track debris, the majority of the field rushed in at the end of Lap 15. However, amid the panic, Rosberg’s right-rear wheel was not correctly fitted and thus immediately flew off his car as he rejoined the driving lane of the pits.
Having bounced along the lane, it then struck Williams’ Nigel Hope, who thankfully was able to continue working after a trip to the medical centre for routine examinations.
“A very disappointing result for our team,” said Haug, Mercedes Motorsport’s Vice President.
“Thankfully the mechanic who was hit by the tyre was quickly released from his check-up in the medical centre and our apologies to him and the Williams team.”
