Audi continues LeMans test at Sebring despite crash
Audi testing both the regular R18 and the Hybrid version as shown at Sebring
Audi is continuing its test at the Sebring International Raceway this week, despite a serious accident late on Monday that hospitalized Timo Bernhard.
The German manufacturer, which started its traditional test the week after the Sebring 12 Hours with four cars, concluded that the technical problem that put Bernhard into the barriers at Turn 17 would not reoccur on the other cars and resumed running on Tuesday.
Bernhard climbed from the wreck of the R18 unaided but was taken to hospital where he spent the night under observation.
Audi began the four-day test with two R18 e-tron quattro hybrids, one conventional turbodiesel R18 and the #3 R18 TDI that took part in the race at Sebring on Saturday.
Eleven of the 12 drivers who will race for the German manufacturer at the Le Mans 24 Hours in June are present. Autosport
