NIGEL MANSELL left hospital yesterday after suffering head and hip injuries in a crash during a touring car race at Donington Park on Sunday.

Only six of the 33 laps remained when Mansell, who had moved up from 13th to third place, claimed he was struck from behind. He then crashed into a bridge. He had to be cut out of the Ford Mondeo he was driving and at one time lost consciousness. 'It could have been a lot worse. I had a lucky escape,' Mansell said as he left the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham.
