A Formula 1 car falls


Following a breakdown involving a Formula 1 car during a historic grand prix, a race official intervened to affix a sling to the vehicle in order to evacuate it from the track.

Because the sling was incorrectly positioned, the vehicle fell about 10 meters, and suffered extensive damage when it hit the ground.

The vehicle was then sent to a workshop specialising in race cars in its country of origin, England.



GM Consultant loss adjusters were appointed to represent the interests of the race organiser, whose liability was called into question by the owner. They examined the vehicle in the English repair shop to assess the damage.
