Franz Tost sheds light on Daniel Ricciardo’s condition

The weekend in Holland è began immediately with a big blow, as the driver of the Alpha Tauri Daniel Ricciardo, after crashing into the barriers in FP2, suffered a fracture in the metacarpal of his left hand that will force him to skip the Zandvoort GP. On the Australian's condition, the team principal of the Faenza-based team Franz Tost expressed himself bluntly: "He was laughing, but the truth is that he is in a lot of pain because it is a serious injury. I hope he was able to sleep. Today he will seeè the doctor and from thereè we will see how to proceed".

"We will see how ità next week in Monza. Maybe there will beà need for surgery. The doctors will decide on that in the next few days. Recovery for a normal person è is six weeks, but he è an F1 driver and we hope he can be a little bit; faster. We would like him to be back in the car, but now è done" added the manager as you canò read about "FormulaPassion".

On the episode also dwelled the person concerned: "I remember that I had already entered turn 3 and then I saw Piastri, so either I hit him or the wall. When I flew into the barriers, I couldn&#39t get my hands off the wheel in time, so I got hurt. It's really frustrating, but I&#39ll try to recover as fast as I can. I would like to come back soon, but I also want to make sure I do things the right way, so to come back strong and competitive. I wish the team and Liam Lawson well, because ité for him è a great opportunityà".
