Simon Pagenaud stands in for injured Justin Wilson

Postby Pepper » Sat 06 Aug, 2011 8:11 pm

Simon Pagenaud will stand in for Justin Wilson at Dreyer & Reinbold in qualifying for the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio after the Briton was injured in second practice on Saturday morning.

Wilson was taken to the Mansfield MedCentral hospital where he received a CAT scan, after initial checks at the circuit's medical centre proved inconclusive.

Team owner Dennis Reinbold suggested that the former Formula 1 driver may even be flown back to Indianapolis for further tests to ascertain the nature of the injury - which remains unspecified.

It has been confirmed Justin has fractured a vertabrae in his back.

Sounds very similar to Vitaly Petrov's accident in Malaysia. The Indycar website says that he ran wide off the track and was launched into the air by a bump in the grass. The car landed on the tarmac of a different circuit configuration and bottomed out.
