Massive crash as it happens between Audi #1 and the Ferrari #71
Rockenfeller had got out of the car on his own, so is mostly OK as far as
we know at the moment. Heard that he is walking and talking, and has gone
to the hospital for a precautionary full body scan.
Skip to 3:35 for the onboard view of the crash.
Can see the stretcher waiting next to the barrier at 2:50, he is still
behind the barrier at this point I believe.
