Apr.2 (GMM) Former formula one driver Tomas Enge was seriously injured in a sports car race in America at the weekend.
While leading the American Le Mans Series race on the St. Petersburg street circuit in Florida, the drivers' side of the 30-year-old Czech's Ferrari 430GT slammed violently into a concrete barrier.
A fire broke out and the clearly injured Enge was dragged out of the wreck and taken to hospital.
It was later confirmed that he sustained a severely shattered left elbow in the impact, as well as cracked ribs, a partially collapsed lung and a possibly broken ankle.
But "all the fears of the worse are gone," team manager Dale White said.
Enge raced three times in formula one in late 2001 as a replacement for Prost's injured regular Luciano Burti.
