Daniel Ricciardo was ruled out of the Dutch Grand Prix on Sunday after being taken to hospital with an injured left hand.
The Australian had an accident with his AlphaTauri in the second practice session – a harmless accident, apart from the fact that he was unable to detach himself from the steering wheel when he hit the wall.
“Ah, damn it, my hand,” the Australian shouted after the crash in turn three.
The 34-year-old was taken to hospital for a check-up with his left arm in a sling.
Red Bull Motorsport Advisor Dr. Helmut Marko said: “We don’t know exactly what it is yet, but he was in a lot of pain.” His wrist is damaged, but we have to wait for the diagnosis.

“This is a new situation for us.” “We’ll first see how Ricciardo is and whether he can drive or not, and then we’ll discuss who gets in the car.”
McLaren’s Oscar Piastri hit the wall moments earlier but was unharmed.
