Formula One camera crews to move to safer ground after BBC employee is hit by stray tyre
Mark Webber's wheel came off in the pit lane
Tuesday 09 July 2013
Formula One Management camera crews are to be stationed on the pit wall for future races after a cameraman was injured when he was hit by a bouncing wheel at the German Grand Prix.
The edict comes from Bernie Ecclestone, who runs FOM, after one of his employees, cameraman Paul Allen, had to be taken to Koblenz hospital on Sunday after sustaining a broken collarbone and two broken ribs when he was struck by Red Bull driver Mark Webber’s loose wheel.
Ecclestone said: “The cameraman happened to be looking the wrong way at the wrong time. In future, all our camera crews will only be allowed to film from the pit wall.”
Following the incident Red Bull were fined £26,800.
