Aug.10 (GMM) Adrian Newey has left hospital with little more than a bruised arm. Red Bull’s famous technical boss was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital at the weekend after crashing a Ginetta sports car during the BTCC round at Snetterton.

After speaking to Newey on the phone, Mark Webber wrote on Twitter on Sunday that the 51-year-old Briton is “in good spirits”, joking that he was complaining about not having “a flexi-bed”.

“Adrian Newey was discharged from hospital on Sunday night with just some slight bruising to his arm,” a spokesman for the Ginetta series is quoted by Italian website 422race.com.”Apart from that he is ok but will be resting this week.”

Red Bull Racing’s Milton Keynes factory closed for its mandatory two-week summer shutdown at midnight on Monday.
